DDC Results: People’s verdict against decisions taken on August 5, 2019, says Mehbooba Mufti

Srinagar: People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti said despite “barring” constituents of PAGD from free poll campaigning ahead of DDC polls across JK by New Delhi and JK administration, the verdict made it clear that people of Jammu and Kashmir outrightly rejected the “unconstitutional” decisions taken on August 5, 2019.

Mehbooba Mufti who is also a former chief minister in a tweet said: “Even after a split in PDP engineered by GOI & all the attempts to write us off, my cadre worked day & night to ensure party’s victory. I am extremely grateful to them”.

She said despite all obstacles put up by the administration to keep us away from canvassing but still, PAGD emerged as a winner in DDC polls. “I was illegally detained thrice over the course of a fortnight. PAGD candidates were locked up in a government building while others barred from canvassing. Despite all these obstacles PAGD emerged as winners. This has been a hard-earned victory for all us”.

Mehbooba asserted that the en masse participation of people in DDC polls gave a clear message to New Delhi that decisions taken on August last year were “unconstitutional”. “Todays DDC results have made it clear that people of J&K voted en masse for @JKPAGD thus rejecting the unconstitutional decision to abrogate Article 370. They have overwhelmingly supported @JKPAGD which stands for the restoration of J&Ks special status”, Mehbooba said in another tweet.

Notably, State Election Commissioner (SEC) on Tuesday declared DDC poll results wherein PAGD emerged as the winner in Kashmir where BJP got only 3 seats – Khanmoh, Kakapora and Tulail despite massive poll campaigning across by high-level leadership. The BJP received a major setback in Doda also where party’s vice president and former minister Shakti Parihar lost the elections against his rival Advocate Syed Asim Hashmi by a margin of 1400 votes.
