Shopian 25 November (KNB):Vice president of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration and president of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti said that BJP would use grenades and guns to bag seats in the upcoming District Development Council (DDC) elections.
While speaking to reporters at Zainapora, PDP chief said, “They (BJP) will use Grenades and guns to bag seats, but people should defeat BJP this time and ensure victory of PAGD candidates,” adding that the Centre was of the belief that parties like National Conference, PDP, Peoples Conference and CPI(M) won’t participate in DDC polls, so that they can ensure the victory of their candidates through ‘backdoor channels’.
Mehbooba Mufti said that she had come to Zainapora to meet the PAGD candidate who unfortunately for the past 15 days was not allowed to come out of his home to do his campaigning for the elections.
“LG Manoj Sinha and SEC KK Sharma are making false claims that every candidate is allowed to go for campaigning. That’s why today, I came here myself to tell people of Zainapora and Shopian to vote for only PAGD candidates for the God’s sake, so that BJP is kept away,” PDP Chief said
She added that the PAGD candidates will work hard for the J&K’s identity that was “stolen on August 5, 2019.”
Regarding the name of former PDP leader Haseeb Drabu surfacing among the 900 people who have allegedly grabbed land under Roshni Scam, Mehbooba Mufti said that the BJP is using ploys to divert attention.
“At times, it uses DC to summon Farooq Abdullah and now Roshni Scam is a new ploy. If I would be found involved in Roshni Scam, I will be the first person to choose jail,” she said. (KNB)
