- Allowing non-locals to vote in Assembly Elections disastrous, unacceptable: G.A.Mir
Srinagar August 17, 2022. Former J&K Pradesh Congress Committee President Ghulam Ahmad Mir Wednesday stated that allowing non-locals to vote in Assembly Elections would be disastrous.
In a statement, Ghulam Ahmad Mir expressed surprise over the Govt of India’s move to influence EC to allow non-locals to vote in J&K.
Mir termed the move politically motivated, disappointing and very unfortunate. GOI should respect the emotions of JK People rather than disempowering them by allowing non-locals to vote, which is unacceptable and intolerable to the people of J&K.
I would advice GOI to desist from doing such undemocratic experiments and focus on the development of J&K and empowerment of people, Mir added.
