Srinagar April 14: Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party & Sr. Executive Member of Supreme Court Bar Association today urged Dr. Nasim Zaidi, the Chief Election Commissioner of India to cancel the farcical and fraudulent electoral election held recently for the Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency. NPP Supremo questioned the Election Commission of India about the justification in holding so-called election in Srinagar Parliamentary constituency whereas postponing Parliamentary election in Anantnag constituency when the Election Commission had issued the simultaneous notifications to hold bye-elections in both the constituencies which fall in the Valley of Kashmir.
The Panthers Party had strongly protested against the decision of the Election Commission of India to hold bye-election at a time when the entire Valley was under the grip of rough weather and snow. Election in the part of the constituency were managed on 9thApril, 2017 whereas in 38 polling stations election was planned on 13th April, 2017. Prof.Bhim Singh maintained his stand while appealing the Election Commission of India that the election in Srinagar parliamentary constituency was rigged and fraudulently 7% of the total number of votes were shown to have been cast in the Srinagar parliamentary election.
The election to the Anantnag parliamentary constituency were postponed by the CEC on the suggestion of the PDP candidate, brother of the ruling Chief Minister.
