SRINAGAR: National Conference Wednesday said that Chief Minister Omar Abdullah will not contest from Ganderbal, the traditional constituency of Abdullah family, in forthcoming assembly elections.
National Conference Additional General Secretary, Dr Shiekh Mustafa Kamal said that Peoples Democratic Party was trying to give an impression that Omar Abdullah is scared of facing people in Ganderbal which is totally baseless.
He said that Omar Abdullah provided all sorts of facilities to the people of Ganderbal and the district witnessed tremendous development under the leadership of Omar Abdullah.
Kamal said that any NC candidate has calibre to defeat any stalwart of PDP from Ganderbal Constituency. National Conference will again emerge as single largest party and would rule the State with the consent and help of people of Jammu and Kashmir. Those who claim that they will get majority are living in a fools paradise, he said adding that the defeat of PDP is imminent.
National Conference Additional General Secretary and legislator alleged that Mufti Muhammad Sayeed during his tenure as Chief Minister encouraged corrupt officers as a result corruption and malpractices became rampant in Jammu and Kashmir.
Omar Abdullah has been trying hard to give corruption free environment to the people and for this purpose several anti-graft agencies were created. Kamal said adding that future of people is always secure during NC rule.
