Srinagar: Opposition Party National Conference (NC) has decided to boycott forthcoming Municipal and Panchayat elections.
Party President Dr. Farooq Abdullah sought suggestions from Core group before announcing it in Press Conference.
Dr Farooq said that GoI should first clear its stands on Article 35-A. He said his party will not participate in the local bodies elections as central government didn’t take the ground situation in account before taking the decision.
The NC president added that Jammu and Kashmir is reeling under huge amount of confusion on Article 35-A, which New Delhi must clear before undertaking the electoral exercise in the state.
