PDP decides to go it alone

Shujaat Bukhari

SRINAGAR: The Opposition People’s Democratic Party will fight the Lok Sabha polls on its own in all six constituencies in Jammu and Kashmir. “We have our own agenda of political resolution of Kashmir and that doesn’t suit any party,” the former Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, said here on Thursday.

Calling for efforts to ensure sustainable peace, Mr. Sayeed said that unless the Armed Forces Special Powers Act was withdrawn, the situation could not become normal.

Asked why he did not revoke the Act when he was in power, he said that at that time situation was bad. Now, the number of militants as well as level of violence had gone down drastically.
