Srinagar: Srinagar Mayor and Apni Party leader Junaid Mattu on Wednesday said that the candidates who won the District Development Council (DDC) elections after seeking votes for the restoration of the special status of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir should bring it back within a month.
“It stands the responsibility of those people who bagged votes on Article 370 abrogation to bring special status back within one month,” Mattu said while addressing a presser at SMC office.
He said that the DDC elections were meant for the development process but candidates were found seeking votes on different issues, adding that sentiments of people have been hurt by raising different agendas during poll campaigning.
Mattu further said that Apni Party is emerging as aan lternative for the people and the party bagging three seats in Srinagar as opposed to NC and PDP bagging only one each is an indication.
He added that many of the independent candidates who have won in DDC elections are with his party. (KNO)
