PDP kick starts poll campaign
I am confident of my victory: Tassaduq
SRINAGAR, Mar 18: People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate from South Kashmir for Lok Sabha polls, Tassaduq Mufti today kick started his election campaign by holding a convention at Dak Bungalow Anantnag.

In the largely attended convention, supporters of PDP in one voice echoed acceptance of candidature of Tassaduq Hussain Mufti and announced to work tirelessly to ensure his victory. The supporters of PDP had gathered on the venue, which included Panches, Sarpanches, common voters, prominent citizens and PDP top brass including Dr Haseeb Drabu, Abdul Rehman Veeri, Abdul Haq Khan and others.

In his brief speech, Tassaduq Mufti, said that he is because of workers and the party. He asked workers not to play with their lives for ensuring his victory. “Whether I will win or not, it will still be our victory,” he said.

“Whether you will ensure my victory or not, I will continue to work for my party,” he said.

The workers of PDP from South Kashmir raised pro-party slogans throughout the meeting.

Meanwhile, terming the election process as ‘a part of democracy’ Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today said that the parliament by-elections for Anantnag and Srinagar seats is not any challenge for them.

Addressing the party workers at Srinagar, PDP senior leader and MLC Yasir Reshi said, “The people of Kashmir have full faith on the leadership of Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti and the people will choose PDP candidates again in the by-elections for Anantnag and Srinagar seats.”

He said, “The political parties are saying that PDP has lost its ground but the fact is that they allied to contest the elections to defeat the people’s party. The both parties NC and Congress joined their hands for the polls, which clearly indicate that they are scared to face defeat in the by-elections.”

Calling PDP as ‘strong wall’ Reshi said, “The opposition parties have already accepted the defeat and are now using tactics to mislead the people.”

He said that the elections were and is not any challenge from them as the party is not contesting the elections in the lust of power but for the progress of the people of Kashmir.
