 We the delegates to the 10th National Convention of PIPFPD held at Bhubaneswar on Feb. 10-11, 2018 under the overhang of the rapidly deteriorating relationship between Pakistan and India, renewed our commitment to the joint struggle for peace and democracy in the two countries.

The delegates met at a very critical juncture in the relationship between India and Pakistan:

More than hundred and fifty delegates, representatives of state chapters of the Forum, from over ten states, resolved to fight war hysteria, including actively intervening on policy issues towards building friendly and cooperative relations between India and Pakistan, crucially recognising that it is integral to the strengthening of democracy within our countries.
