No Fear Of Cross Voting: Prof Soz
Srinagar, Dec 2: A day before the election for four seats resereved for Panchayat Representatives in Legislative Council in JK, the coalition partners – National Conference and Congress-on Sunday claimed that they would win all the seats, while the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said that general trend was in its favour.
Talking to Greater Kashmir senior National Conference leader and Chief Minister’s Political Advisor, Devender Singh Rana, said: “In democracy voter is the master, but evaluating overwhelming favorable response during
the campaigning we are confident that we will win all four seats and give a befitting reply to our detractors who have been spreading false canards about the government and indulging in baseless rhetoric to defame the coalition.”
State Congress President Prof Saifuddin Soz said the coalition would bag all the four seats as “We are committed to empowerment of Panchayat representatives.”
“All the candidates fielded by us would win the election with a comfortable margin,” Soz said, adding that they are committed to empower them (Panchayat representatives) through incorporation of certain more provisions in the Panchayat Act of the State.
Soz, who heads the Coordination Committee of NC and Congress, said that there is unity between cadres of both the parties on ground level and they had sought votes for coalition during joint election campaign and not for parties. “There is no fear of cross- voting,” he added.
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, which is banking on its rural vote bank claimed that general trend was in favour of the party. “We cannot presume anything at this juncture about our prospects but I can say that general trend is in our favour,” chief spokesman of PDP, Naeem Akthar told Greater Kashmir.
