State Secretary CPI (M), Yousuf Tarigami Wednesday filed his nomination papers in the office of Dy. Commissioner Kulgam. He was accompanied by Ghulam Hassan Mir and Hakeem Mohammad Yaseen.
Tarigami is seeking mandate from the electorate of Kulgam constituency for the fourth consecutive term, as he has retained the seat since 1996 continuously.
A large number of people accompanied Tarigami while dancing on the tunes of drums.
Later addressing a rally at Town Hall Kulgam, Tarigami said that peace in the south Asia is subservient to cordial relations between India and Pakistan and hostilities be pacified on the LOC to foster the peace and ensure the development in the sub-continent. He appealed both the countries to carry forward a meaningful dialogue for exploring means to resolve the bilateral issues including Kashmir, besides dialogue with all shades of opinion on the internal front is also an obligation of the Government of India.
Tarigami said that the political setup is being much humiliated by the opportunists and defectionists that have eroded the faith of the people in the democracy and the electorate process. “The tainted and tempted bureaucrats are equally adding to this humiliation on securing their space in the political spectrum,” he said adding the political parties don’t hesitate to embrace these unwarranted and blotted elements with open arms.
