Srinagar, Dec 24 :The people have alongside handed over the responsibility on the shoulders of the Peoples Alliance to carry out the task for development at the Panchayat levels, said Muzaffar Shah Sr. Vice President Awami National Conference (ANC). While addressing the Presser at Party Headquarters here in Srinagar Muzaffar Shah Said, “The BJP govt. has stooped to new levels of political witch hunting with blatant misuse of agencies going on a free spree of arrests, raids & harassment which are highly condemnable.” Muzaffar Shah while complementing people on behalf of ANC President Begum Khalida Shah said, the people of Jammu & Kashmir came out in large numbers and have stamped their approval for People’s Alliance candidates signalling to the country the need for immediate restoration of Article 370 & 35A abrogated unconstitutionally & illegally by the Modi Govt on 5 th Aug 2019.
“These measures will not deter us from pursuing our laid down policies. It is shameful for the BJP & it’s allies to lure & coerce the independents with intimidation & money power”, said Muzaffar Shah
the decision of filing a writ petition before the Hon’ble High Court of J&K challenging the decision of the State Election Commission declaring the Apni Party candidate successful in Bandipora A segment after mass rigging & booth capture at Garoora A&B booths on the polling day ( 13 th Dec 2020 under gross violations of the election rules. No action was taken on the two petitions submitted with all records to the DC Bandipora & the SEC on the polling day.
A copy of the fresh petition addressed to Deputy Commissioner Bandipora as Chief election offIcer demanding release of CCTV footage was circulated to the media. The ANC lawyers will be moving the court in case of their demand not being met for a repoll in Bandipora A DDC constituency if the CCTV footage is not released that clearly establishes our case of mass rigging & booth capture.”
Muzaffar Shah while addressing the Presser further stated that the Alliance could have bagged 40 odd seats more if the local workers of some parties had not indulged in the practise of putting up dummy candidates which finally damaged the PAGD chances in both Kashmir & Jammu division.
Shah further alleged that the alarming reports coming in from various areas of the valley are suggesting a gross violation of EC rules & a naked dance of democracy suggesting involvement of the administration to secure joining of Independents with BJP by offering 1 cr plus to each candidate.
