Assembly polls must take place in Jammu and Kashmir: Farooq Abdullah
SRINAGAR: Assembly elections must take place in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) as the lieutenant governor’s administration cannot resolve the issues of the people, National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah said on Sunday.
Speaking to reporters in the Baramulla district in North Kashmir, Abdullah also said the elections lead to the formation of a people’s government.
“Elections must take place. Elections lead to the formation of the people’s government and resolve their issues. A lieutenant governor cannot do that,” he said.
On Monday’s meeting called by the Election Commission of India to demonstrate a prototype to enable remote voting for migrant workers and students, the former Union minister said that NC will also attend it.
