PIL moved in Delhi HC to bar NC, PDP from contesting Lok Sabha elections; Mehbooba reacts sharply

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed on Monday in Delhi High Court seeking a ban on the participation of two main regional political parties of Jammu and Kashmir and their leadership in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The petition was moved by Advocate Sanjjiiv Kkumaar.

Advocate K kumaar has alleged that three Kashmiri leaders (Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti) do not have faith in Indian Constitution and hence they and their party PDP and NC should be barred from participating in Lok Sabha election.

The petition said that their (three leaders) loyalties lie somewhere else and not in Indian Constitution.

Former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has sharply reacted to the petition.

“Why waste time in court. Wait for BJP to scrap Article 370. It will automatically debar us from fighting elections since Indian constitution won’t be applicable to J&K anymore. Na samjho gay tou mit jaouge aye Hindustan walo. Tumhari dastaan tak bhi na hogi dastaano main (sic),” Mehbooba tweeted.
