Mir gives war cry, says will withdraw from elections if Governor Rule not imposed
Congress leader and joint candidate of the Congress-National Conference alliance for south Kashmir’s Anantnag parliamentary seat, G A Mir threatened to withdraw from the elections in case the present government is not dismissed and Governor’s rule is not imposed in the state.
Mir on Monday had opposed the deferment of the by-poll in Anantnag parliamentary constituency. Talking to the media in Anantnag, Mir said the inability of the PDP-led coalition government in providing a peaceful atmosphere for the by-election had proved Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s failure.
According to sources, Mir will hand over a memorandum in this regard to the concerned returning officer of the constituency on Tuesday.
The Election Commission has deferred the Anantnag by-poll to May 25.
