l be held under Governor’s rule in order to ensure free, fair and successful conduct of electoral process.
Submitting a memorandum to State Governor at Raj Bhawan here, a Congress delegation led by its state president G A Mir demanding imposition of Governor’s rule in view of state government’s total failure on all fronts. It apprised the Governor of worsening situation, saying that it has been evident from large scale violence and unprecedented lowest ever poll percentage and security environment to ensure successful conduct of elections.
The delegation comprised of senior leaders of PCC and Legislators including Sham Lal Sharma, Nawang Rigzin Jora, Ghulam Mohammad Saroori, Haji Rasheed, Ch Aijaz Ahmed Khan, Mula Ram, Mohd Amin Bhat MLA, Usman Majid-MLA and Gulzar Wani- MLA and chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma.
The Congress leaders also complained about the partisan role of the present dispensation in the conduct of elections, saying that there has been large scale resentment against the present ruling coalition. The present government should step down as it has no moral authority to remain in power otherwise the situation would further worsen which would be difficult to retrieve, they added.
The party delegation also demanded that any future election in the state should be conducted under governor rule in order to ensure free, fair and successful conduct of the electoral exercise. The election commission also should take on board the opposition to assure the free, fair and transparent conduct of elections.
