Differences on seat sharing grow deeper in PAGD
Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which is a signatory to People’s Alliance of Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) Thursday said that differences within the alliance may grow deeper, incase its head, Dr Farooq Abdullah does not ‘review’ decisions taken on ‘seat sharing’.
Addressing a press conference at PDP head office, party General Secretary, Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura appealed PAGD president Dr Farooq Abdullah to review decisions on seat-sharing before the differences between different parties within the amalgam grow deeper.
He said National Conference (NC) has fielded its official candidates in certain areas where PDP candidates contest on PAGD ticket.
Hanjura alleged that NC without any consultation with alliance members allotted some seats of Congress to its own candidates after the party pulled out from the PAGD.
“There were already issues on seat sharing in the amalgam and I was crestfallen the moment I saw NC has fielded its candidates on 13 out of fourteen seats in Budgam constituency. This is not good for the alliance. I appeal to the alliance head to review decisions on seat sharing before the differences grow deeper,” Hanjura added. (KNO)
