Election boycott source of bad governance: Imran

Pattan: Claiming that people of Pattan constituency are in no mood to give heed to election boycott call of Hurriyat leaders, PDP candidate Imran Ansari Monday said that ‘enforced boycott’ is the source of bad governance in Kashmir. 

He said that it is a paradox that those candidates get elected due to boycott who have no faith and trust among people. “An elected candidate don’t work for people with an impression that people will boycott every time and he will get elected again,” he said.

Ansari added that those who issue boycott calls have also understood that it leads nowhere and adds to the misery of the people. “Hurriyat leaders are no active while Jamat-i-Islami has already declared that it will not issue any boycott call and will leave everything to people,” Imran Ansari said. 

He said that this time people want change and want to get rid of bad governance that according to him prevailed from last six years. “People of Pattan will vote as they want good governance. They will repose trust in PDP as people believe and feel that it is the only party that could relieve them from the miseries,” Ansari said.

He added that it is an obligation for the voters to elect a people friendly candidate who could work for their betterment. “When a good guy doesn’t cast vote, bad guy emerges as victorious that is paradox in democracy,” he said and added that people in Pattan will surely vote for him for a change.

Ansari sought action against a particular politician whose alleged immoral audio recording about a conversation with a girl is making rounds on social networking sites.
