RELISH – The first such restaurant run by two Sikh women Parkash Kour and Narinder Pal Kour assisted by their wards Manjot singh, Manpreet Singh and Dalbir Singh will be providing continental besides Indian food to the food lovers of the town on affordable rates.
Located at Kralhar near ITI Baramulla, the newly opened restaurant, according to owners, will serve food to Sikh community, food lovers and commuters who ply on national highways Srinagar-Baramulla, on an affordable rate.
The proud lady owners said that they got inspired from State President Women’s Wing of PDP and ‘Relish’ is the outcome of that inspiration.
“Safina ji is our inspiration, our role model. I always wanted to do something in my life. You can say this restaurant is basically an outcome of the inspiration we received from Safina Beigh,” said Prakash Kour.
On this occasion, Sikh youth leader Amanjeet Singh while congratulating the women entrepreneurs said that Sikh community has always been on the forefront of development in the state.
“Women are coming to the forefront. We have a cordial relationship with other communities in Kashmir but Sikh community was lacking a space where they eat and sit. This venture by these ladies is a great step to the empowerment of women and Sikh community,” Amanjeet said.
He also welcomed and thanked PDP Women’s wing Chief Safina Beigh for inaugurating the restaurant and inspiring the women of the valley.
On the sidelines of the program, Safina Beigh while answering a question said boycotting civil polls was in the better interests of Kashmir.
“Our party decided to be away from Municipal elections for the betterment of Kashmir. The high command while consulting all party members took a unanimous decision to boycott the civic polls and they did it right. PDP is working hard on ground level and for the betterment of people,” she said.
