Srinagar, Oct 8: Taking a dig at National Conference and PDP for boycotting the ongoing municipal elections in Jammu and Kashmir, the Peoples Conference chairman and MLA Handwara Sajad Gani lone, also a former separatist-turned-minister, after casting his vote dared National Conference and PDP to boycott elections the way his party Peoples Conference boycotted elections for 25 years and vacate from seats in state assembly and parliament and surrender government bungalows occupied by their legislators and parliamentarians.
Talking to reporters after casting his vote, Lone said: “Peoples Conference boycotted for 25 years and we experienced its final outcome and results. Let National Conference and PDP boycott for another 25 years the way Peoples Conference boycotted for 25 years. Let National Conference and PDP ask its MLAs and MPs to quit their seats in state assembly and parliament. They will come to know what the final outcome of boycott politics is. There are other ways of boycott, what is the fun of asking poor people to boycott votes when there are other ways of boycotting.”
