CPI (M) seeks assembly elections in JK


Srinagar, March 11: The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Monday said that it is perplexing how the security situation in Jammu & Kashmir is good for the conduct of the Lok Sabha elections and not for the assembly elections which are also due. Currently, Jammu & Kashmir is under the central rule as its assembly is dissolved.
The spokesman said that Union Home Minister had earlier assured the people of Jammu & Kashmir that assembly elections will also be held. All the non-BJP political parties in J&K in their meeting with the full election commission when it visited the state appealed for the holding of the simultaneous election.
The Election Commission should seriously consider this issue and announce the schedule for the assembly election simultaneously.
