Candidate Gets 2 Lakh To Contest Polls: NC

SRINAGAR —  National Conference (NC) on Saturday accused the Governor administration of Jammu and Kashmir of “bribing” any person Rs two lakh to contest the Urban Local Bodies (ULB) polls.

Talking to local news agency Kashmir News Service (KNS), NC provincial president, Nasir Aslam Wani said that Governor led administration is offering bribe of Rs two lakh to the candidates to contest in the Municipal polls in Jammu and Kashmir. 

He said that the elections without the participation of mainstream parties are meaningless, saying that the government is conducting such elections against the mainstream.

Commenting over the wining of candidates in Kulgam uncontested, Wani said those who are emerged victorious are not even aware about anything from the areas where they have been declared as winning candidates.

“I believe that these elections being conducted without the participation of mainstream parties are temporary and the new government in the state will try to hold these polls again,” he said.
