Farooq ‘failed to do anything’ for J&K, what can other NC leaders do? Asks Mehbooba



ANANTNAG, May 14: People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that voters turned out in large numbers in the Srinagar parliamentary constituency to express their opposition to the August 2019 decisions.

Talking to reporters after addressing party workers in the Killam area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district, Mehbooba, as per news agency KNO, said people in J&K have been feeling suffocated and their high voter turnout was a way to break free from this suffocation.

“People came to vote to give a message that whatever decision regarding jobs, land and resources were taken in August 2019 and after that, are unacceptable to them,” she said.

The PDP chief said the good turnout in the Srinagar Parliamentary seat will be followed by similar participation in the Anantnag-Rajouri and north Kashmir seats.

“The situation in Srinagar and Anantnag is the same and people in the Anantnag seat will also come to vote for their candidate who will raise their voice in parliament,” she said.

Mufti alleged that authorities were deliberately delaying the voting process wherever they found people in large numbers coming to vote in favour of the PDP.

She requested voters of other constituencies to stay in line till they won’t cast votes. She said the Election Commission of India (ECI) must intervene in this matter.

In her address, Mehbooba questioned the efficacy of the National Conference saying, “When a tall leader like Farooq Abdullah who is a four-time chief minister and three-time Member Parliament failed to do anything for the people of J&K, then what will these NC leaders achieve if elected now.”

“If their tallest leader failed to do anything then how their junior can do anything,” the former CM added—(KNO)
