SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (R) has complimented the people of Srinagar Parliamentary constituency for boycotting the elections. In a statement, JKLF spokesman, Wajahat Quershi, said, “The poll boycott should serve as an eye opener for New Delhi.” He hoped that people of Varmul and Kargil constituencies would follow suit.
Meanwhile the convener, Hurriyat Conference (G) and chairman J&K Peoples League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has expressed satisfaction over the election boycott in Srinagar Parliamentary constituency. In an e-mailed statement, he said, “Despite a war like situation for the last several weeks by the Delhi-backed government, the voters of Kashmir rejected the pro Indian parties’ call to cast their votes, which should open eyes of those who supported a constitutional solution of Kashmir dispute with India.”
He said the situation would in no way be different in Varmul and Kargil on May 13. Chairman Salvation Movement, Zaffar Akbar Bhat, complimented people of Srinagar Parliamentary constituency for boycotting elections. “By boycotting polls people of the constituency have emboldened the morale of separatist forces in Kashmir,” Zaffar said in a statement. While lashing at New Delhi, he said, “Government of India should accept the ground reality now and solve Kashmir dispute once for all.” NNI
