BARAMULLA: Calling militants as Mujahideen, the National Conference nominated candidate for Baramulla Assembly Segment, Ghulam Hassan Rahi, on Thursday said pasting election boycott posters was a democratic right.
If anyone calls for boycott or pastes anti-poll posters, it is his democratic right. They have also their role to play, the NC leader, told reporters, after he was asked about the anti-poll posters pasted in parts of the Baramulla district allegedly by militants.
When asked that these posters were attributed to militants, he said: I dont think. Who knows? I dont want to blame Mujahideen. God knows who are behind these posters (sic), adding: you know better than me because you are affiliated with journalism.
Earlier, Omar Abdullah Chief Minister addressed the rally participants.
Pertinently, police on Wednesday said an investigation has been launched in pasting of posters. (GNS)
