Union minister Jitendra Singh on Thursday castigated decision  of mainstream parties including National Conference(NC) and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) of boycotting upcoming civic body polls in the state.

Speaking to media-persons on the sidelines of a programme here, Singh said: "It is now obvious that these political parties are ready for Assembly election in a bid to grab ministerial berths if possible.

But they are not ready for Panchayat election which will result in handing over power to the popularly elected Panches and Sarpanchs".

Singh termed boycott by two mainstream parties including NC and PDP in Kashmir as "self-centric" approach.
