Srinagar, Aug 24: In a clear indication that National Conference wouldn’t have truck with any constituent of the Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) in assembly polls of Jammu & Kashmir, the party on Tuesday said that its provincial committee members unanimously resolved that they should contest all 90 assembly seats.
In a series of tweets, National Conference said that its provincial committee members unanimously resolved that the party should prepare and fight all 90 seats.
Without naming any constituent of the PAGD, the NC leaders expressed dismay over the recent statements, audio jingles and speeches made by some of the constituents of the PAGD targeting the party.
“The participants present in the meeting expressed dismay over the recent statements, audio jingles & speeches made by some of the constituents of the PAGD targeting JKNC. They felt that it does not contribute to the overall unity of the amalgam,” the party tweeted.
The participants of the meeting also denounced the unfair treatment meted out to the party in PAGD and demanded immediate course correction from alliance constituents.
This is the first time since the constitution of the PAGD that NC has dropped hints that it wouldn’t have an electoral arrangement with any constituent of the alliance.
In 2020, the PAGD constituents had fought district development council polls together and won 110 seats in J&K.
