NC activists stage anti-Mufti protest, seek bye-election
Islamabad (Anantnag), Jan 22: Activists of ruling National Conference (NC) on Saturday staged a protest here against the local MLA and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed for remaining absent from his constituency. They presented a memorandum to Deputy Commissioner seeking bye-election in Islamabad (Anantnag).
Scores of NC activists led by their youth president for district Islamabad (Anantnag), Iftikhar Hussain Misgar, took out a procession from Wazirbagh to Deputy Commissioner’s (DC) office. Protesters were carrying placards and banners reading: “Down with PDP, Down with Mufti.”
They alleged that Mufti, who won the 2008 assembly elections from this south Kashmir constituency by defeating Member Parliament and senior NC leader Dr Mehboob Beg, had not visited his constituency since he was elected.
“Mufti Muhammad Sayeed has ignored his area. This has hindered the development in this town and whatever development is taking place here is all because of the personal intervention of Chief Minister.” Misgar said.
“He (Mufti) has never turned up to see what is happening with the people of his constituency. We saw him only during the election campaigning. He does not even attend the assembly sessions and district development board meetings” protesters said.
