Administration flawed all norms in DDC chairperson elections in Kupwara: NC
Says partisan disposition of administration raises serious question mark on partiality of elections
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Monday stated that the district administration Kupwara flawed all norms in the elections to district development council chairperson and deputy chairperson by playing a partisan role to engineer a particular outcome.
Remarking on the election meeting held in Kupwara, Party’s District president Kupwara Qaisar Jamsheed Lone said that the all set norms were thrown to winds in the elections to elect DDC chairperson. “The predetermined time for the elections was set from 11.00 pm to 1.00 pm; during that time the elections process couldn’t be initiated due to the lack of required quorum pending which the election process was adjourned. Ditching all norms, the elections to the DDC chairperson and deputy chairperson were then held in a veil of secrecy at around 2.00, much later after the stimulated time slot was fixed for the exercise. The proceedings were eventually initiated after the administration got hold of the independent DDC. The way the entire exercise was carried out raises serious question mark on the partiality of elections,” he said.
