ECI not serious for by-polls: NC
Srinagar: Opposition National Conference and Congress who boycotted the video conference meeting with ECI said on Tuesday that the Commission was not serious to hold Anantnag by-polls slated for May, 25.
Earlier PDP in its meeting with ECI has urged the Commission to postpone the Anantnag election indefinitely because of deteriorating law and order situation in entire South Kashmir. On Monday district president of PDP in pulwama was gunned down by militants sending a chilling reminder of ground situation. Omar Abdullah in a tweet recently taunted Mehbooba Mufti for inviting other states to hold events in Kashmir. He said let her hold only one event i.e. by-poll of Anantnag before inviting other states for mega events.
