Srinagar, Sep 8: President of National Conference Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said that his party would boycott Lok Sabha and assembly elections as well if the Government of India fails to “end ambiguity” over its stand on Article 35-A and Article 370.
“We will not only boycott Panchayat elections but also Lok Sabha & Assembly elections if the Centre fails to clear it’s stand on Articles which provide special status to J&K,” Farooq told reporters on the sidelines  of a function here organized to commemorate death anniversary of late Sheikh Abdullah.
It may be recalled that National Conference has already announced to boycott of the Panchayat and municipal polls slated from next month in the state.
