People only remembered during polls: Khalid Jahangir

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate for Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency Khalid Jahangir Friday said that betrayal with the people of Kashmir especially youth is the reason behind their alienation with mainstream leaders.

“People are being remembered during the polls and are being betrayed later,” Khalid said, adding that this was the reason that people especially youth are alienated.

He said as far as his constituency is concerned, he will try to remain connected to people and end the past practices of ignoring masses after poll results.

About public support to National Conference (NC) and other parties, Khalid said, “I remember in my childhood people in large number were attending Dr Farooq’s rallies but today people join rallies only after they were given benefits. It indicates that people have understood the reality of such leaders.”
