Ruling coalition gears up for LC polls
Jammu, Nov 17: The coalition partners, Congress and National Conference, have intensified their joint efforts to ensure the victory of their respective candidates in the upcoming elections to the four seats to the upper house.
The elections to the four seats for the Legislative Council reserved for the Panchayat members would be held on December 3 in which 33,000 Panchayat members would exercise their franchise to elect their representatives.
Election Coordination Committee comprising members from both Congress and the National Conference, which has been specially constituted to formulate a strategy for ensuring the victory of coalition candidates, today held its second meeting and explored several steps to be taken at the ground level.
Sources told Greater Kashmir that no major decision was taken in the today’s meeting but it was decided that both Congress and National Conference would launch vigorous campaign very soon at the ground level to woo maximum number of Panchayat representatives.
“The Election Coordination Committee which is basically a strategic committee would meet on short notices and at short intervals to shape the strategy for the elections from time to time,” sources said.
They said that although, the names have not yet been finalized but it was decided that the senior leaders form both the parties including MLAs and MLCs would campaign for the party candidates throughout the state at block, tehsil and provincial levels.
