Like terrorists, activists of NC, PDP are out to destabilize civic polls in Kashmir: Madhav

JAMMU: BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Friday alleged that activists of the NC and the PDP were trying to derail civic polls in Jammu and Kashmir like the terrorists and were threatening independent candidates.

In a scathing attack on the National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which have announced boycott of the polls, Madhav alleged that the two “dynasty-run parties” were against grassroots democracy in the State.

He, however, praised the Congress for contesting the polls.

“Terrorists and over ground workers are involved in derailing and destabilizing polls. The same is being done by the activists of NC and PDP. We have reports that in several places in Kashmir Valley, the activists of these outfits (NC and PDP) are threatening candidates who are going to file nominations as independents,” Madav told reporters here.
