National Conference leader Justice HasnainMasoodi and candidate for Anantnag Parliamentary Constituency has thanked voters of District Anantnag for casting their vote in favour of National Conference,
He said the NC stands for Kashmiri identity and against the forces that have in the past seven decades and particularly in last four and a half years eroded autonomy of the state.
Justice Masoodi expressed concern over clubbing of polling stations, as according to him, clubbing has made it inconvenient for voters to travel long distances, in some cases few kilometers, to cast their vote. “The clubbing of polling stations has not only contributed to low turnout of voters but practically deprived voters of their precious right to vote,” Justice Masoodi said.
He has also condemned the alleged assault by the PDP workers and their accomplices on local youth within premises of a polling station at Bijbehara, only because the youth had courage to resist fake and bogus voting.
The attack, Justice Masoodi said, depicts level of frustration and nervousness of the PDP leadership. He demanded registration of case against those responsible for the attack and its impartial investigation.
The voters of Bijbehara, he said, had no option but to reject the PDP through ballot, “as PDP heaped unprecedented atrocities on the people and made lethal attacks on the identity and autonomy of Jammu & Kashmir”.
“ The voters of Bijbehara by deciding not to vote for PDP, have only made a honest effort to wash off the blot, that has smeared image of a town occupying a distinguished place in the history of the state, Justice Masoodi said.
