Sajjad Lone alleges ‘police hand’ in elections
Srinagar: Former minister Sajad Lone on Wednesday claimed that a non-state subject Indian Police Services (IPS) officer is indulging in electoral politics. He said that the officer is trying to script an electoral win for his favorite candidate.
“IPS officer of the rank of ADGP indulging in electoral politics. Summoned some SPs, DSPs deliberating how to script a wave for his fav leader. Will name him soon. But hope @PMOIndia @jandkgovernor @KVijayKumarIPS take note. give us an even play field. Is that too much to ask,” Lone wrote on his Twitter handle.
Lone, who heads Peoples Conference, is now a BJP ally, said if the police officer was keen to fight elections he must do it in his own state.
“If the said ADGP is so keen to enter politics let him go and fight in his own state. Don’t the people of J & K deserve to choose their leader without these Machiavellian tactics? Aren’t rigged elections the reason where we r today. Are their no lessons to be learnt (Sic),” Lone said.
