PDP will field candidates on all 3 seats of Kashmir: Mehbooba Mufti

People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti Wednesday said that the party will contest from all Lok Sabha seats of Kashmir, adding the list of the candidates will be made out within coming days.

Addressing press conference here in Srinagar, Mehbooba said that PDP will contest from al Kashmir Lok Sabha seats. She expressed dejection over remarks made by NC leader and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah over PDP that the party exists nowhere on the ground and likely it will not field its candidates from Kashmir.

“There was a need to fight polls together because of the situation emerged after August 05, 2019. Everyone has been restricted and no one is allowed to talk. PDP has been the prime target. So in such a situation what is left with us,” Mehbooba said.

Expressing disappointment over remarks made by former chief minister, Mehbooba said “Had Omar Abdullah consulted with us, PDP would have considered the situation for the larger interest of Kashmir but he took the decision without taking us on board”.

She said due to Omar Abdullah’s remarks against PDP, our workers got deeply hurt. “The workers of PDP are broken due to statements made by Omar Abdullah. PDP has attained power two times in recent past but still Omar Abdullah is saying PDP is non-existent”, she said.

She questioned over the role of Dr. Farooq Abdullah with regard to the alliance, saying “When you assign leadership responsibility to anyone he should have been delivered justice to all. But they have not left any space for us. We hoped NC will rise above the party affiliations this time but they proved us wrong. Omar Abdullah’s presser was unfortunate in which he spoke against our credibility. This was injustice with our party workers who are surviving in a tumultuous situation”.

Mehbooba however added that PDP will announce the list of candidates within couple of days.
