SRINAGAR: Former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti will be the PDP candidate from Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency but the party has decided not to field any candidates for Jammu and Udhampur seats in a bid to prevent division of “secular votes”.
Announcing the party candidates, PDP chief Mehbooba said Aga Mohsin will be the party candidate for Srinagar seat.
“I will contest from Anantnag seat,” she told reporters here.
The party has already named former employees’ union leader Abdul Qayoom Wani for the Baramulla Lok Sabha seat.
Mehbooba said the parliamentary board of the party, which met earlier on Saturday, decided not to field any candidates from the two Lok Sabha seats in Jammu region. (AGENCIES)
