SRINAGAR — Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and National Conference on Tuesday said that the parties will not field any proxy candidate for the upcoming Panchayat and Municipal elections in the state, slated to be held from next month. 

PDP chief spokesperson, Rafi Ahmad Mir while reacting to the reports about proxy candidates said, “There was no question of fielding any proxy candidate at this juncture.” 

He said that the party keeping in view of the situation on ground that was created due to the Article 35-A case has already decided to boycott the upcoming elections.

PDP chief spokesperson said that the party is not against the democratic processes but at present, war like situation has been created in Jammu and Kashmir ahead of the polls. “Several Panchayat ghars were set ablaze by unidentified persons so far. The party after thorough deliberations observed that the people at present are in no mood of Panchayat and ULB polls, therefore decided to stay away from the elections,” he said.

Mir said that the people at present are disturbed and it was imminent for the party to go with the aspirations of people.

He said that prior to the elections, the political parties have done several promises with the people but those promises have not been fulfilled. “There was a need to adopt people-friendly policy instead of showing arrogance,” he said, adding that the people-friendly policy would bear fruit.

Meanwhile, National Conference general secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar too rejected reports about fielding of proxy candidates, saying that party’s decision to stay away from polls was final and there was no question of fielding any proxy candidates.
