Srinagar, Oct 08: Taking a dig at National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for boycotting the ongoing municipal elections in Jammu and Kashmir, the Peoples Conference chairman and MLA Handwara Sajad Gani Lone also a former minister after casting his vote dared National Conference and PDP to boycott elections the way his party Peoples Conference boycotted elections for twenty five years and vacate from seats in state assembly and parliament and surrender government bungalows occupied by their legislators and parliamentarians.
Talking to reporters after casting his vote, Sajad Gani Lone said “Peoples Conference boycotted for twenty five years and we experienced its final outcome and results. Let National Conference and PDP boycott for another twenty five years the way Peoples Conference boycotted for twenty five years. Let National Conference and PDP ask its MLAs and MPs to quite their seats in state assembly and parliament. They will come to know what is the final outcome of boycott politics. There are other ways of boycott, what is the fun of asking poor people to boycott votes when there are other ways of boycotting.” (KNS)
