Will not contest elections until the special status of J&K is restored : Mehbooba Mufti

The metaphorical disease of anti-nationalism got cured without any treatment.

Srinagar (J&K) – People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President and former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, announced that her party will not contest the elections until the restoration of special status of Jammu and Kashmir.


Mufti said, “I have made it clear many times that I would not contest any elections under the Union Territory, but at the same time, my party is also aware of the fact that we will not yield political space to anyone. Therefore, we contested the District Development Council elections held last year. Similarly, if Assembly elections are announced, then the party will discuss about contesting them. (It clearly implies that ‘PDP will contest the elections’. It seems that Mehbooba Mufti’s announcement to not to contest the elections is just a farce ! – Editor)
