Allowing Non-Locals To Vote In J&K Will Be Disastrous As 1987 Rigging: Sajad Lone

SRINAGAR: Peoples Conference chairman and former minister Sajad Gani Lone said that allowing non-locals to vote in assembly elections will be as disastrous as 1987 rigging.

Reacting to the statement of the Chief Electoral Officer of J&K that every citizen of the country staying in J&K can have voting rights in the assembly elections, Lone said that such a step would be a replay of 1987.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Sajad wrote, “This is dangerous. I don’t know what they want to achieve. This is much more than mischief. Democracy is a relic, especially in the context of Kashmir. Please remember 1987. We are yet to come out of that. Don’t replay 1987. It will be as disastrous.”
