Those boycotting did injustice with Kashmiris, says Raina

The state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said that the party is determined to contest the upcoming Municipal polls from each and every ward of Kashmir, saying that those who boycott elections did injustice with people of Kashmir.

BJP state president Ravinder Raina while talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS) said that over 50 candidates from Srinagar will be filling their nomination papers on BJP’s ticket for the upcoming Municipal polls tomorrow. 

He said that BJP is committed to fight elections from each and every ward in Kashmir, saying the party is hopeful that people will come out and cast their ballots.

Besides Srinagar, Raina said that the BJP will be contesting from all 17 wards of Bandipora district. He added that the maximum candidates in north Kashmir will be from BJP.

Also, Raina added that in Qazigund, Devsar and Kulgam in South Kashmir, maximum candidates will be from BJP.

He said the though the Urban Local Bodies (ULB) polls were not conducted in the state since long. “Now, besides political parties, it was the demand of general public that these elections should be conducted,” he said.

Raina said that the party is determined to fulfill the wishes and aspirations of people. “BJP will put its every effort to resolve every single issue pertaining to the needs of people,” he added.

Lashing out the mainstream parties who announced to boycott the elections, Raina said it is unfortunate that those who are Member of Parliaments are boycotting the elections. “By boycotting the elections, the mainstream parties in the state did injustice with people of Kashmir,” he said.
