DDC Results: All Attempts To Write Us Off Failed, This Has Been Hard Earned Victory, Says Mehbooba

SRINAGAR: Reacting to the results of District Development Council elections, former chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said the results of the DDC elections have made it clear that the people of Jammu and Kashmir have voted for the Gupkar alliance and rejected the Centre’s “unconstitutional” decision to abrogate Article 370.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Mehbooba Mufti wrote: “Todays DDC results have made it clear that people of J&K voted en masse for @JKPAGD thus rejecting the unconstitutional decision to abrogate Article 370. They have overwhelmingly supported @JKPAGD which stands for the restoration of J&Ks special status.”

“Our win is dedicated to PAGD cadre who worked tirelessly to ensure our success. GOI left no stone unturned to create hurdles for us. Beginning with @parawahid’s arrest a day after he filed his DDC nominations, restricting our movement & not allowing us to the campaign,” Mehbooba tweeted.

“I was illegally detained thrice over the course of a fortnight. PAGD candidates were locked up in a government building while others barred from canvassing. Despite all these obstacles PAGD emerged as winners. This has been a hard earned victory for all us,” she tweeted.

“Even after a split in PDP engineered by GOI & all the attempts to write us off, my cadre worked day & night to ensure party’s victory. I am extremely grateful to them,” Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.
