Peoples Democratic Party General Secretary Muhammad Dilawar Mir Saturday said that court verdict against him will not stop him from contesting assembly elections from  Rafiabad seat of North Kashmir’s Baramulla district. “The Court verdict will have no bearing upon my candidature and I will contest the upcoming assembly elections from Rafiabad on PDP ticket,” Mir said while addressing his workers at Rafiabad bus stand.

Senior PDP leader Muhammad Dilawar Mir has been sentenced to three years by a Delhi court in a case related to wrongful release of Rs 30 lakh and contract for sale of urea to his firm M/s Good Friends Agencies  by public sector National Fertilizers Limited in 1993-1996. The court, however, allowed his bail plea and suspended his sentence till January 2015 to enable him to file an appeal against his conviction and sentence.

Muhammad Dilawar Mir alleged that both National Conference and BJP have started twisting the facts about court decision and are spreading rumours that he will not be able to contest upcoming assembly elections. “National Conference is doing so as this party knows that I will emerge as victorious from Rafiabad. Before accusing and raising fingers on me, this party should not forget that its leaders are the killers of its own party worker Syed Muhammad Yousuf. Both NC and BJP are equally responsible for the murder of Muhammad Afzal Guroo,” he said.

Mir according to CNS reiterated that court verdict would have no bearing upon contesting elections. “I have been nominated by party as a candidate for Rafiabad constituency and I will contest the elections,” he said.

He said that the timing of verdict surprised him. Mir alleged that National Conference had hired five gunmen to assassinate him and when they failed in their mission, they started false propaganda against him.
