'Ready to join electoral fray'

SRINAGAR, Jan 17: PDP today strongly dismissed the statement of governor Satyapal Malik that the party was not ready for assembly elections.
PDP described the governor's claim as a misplaced presumption and said it had geared for peoples’ verdict even before the dissolution of assembly last year.
In a statement, senior PDP leader Nizam-ud-din Bhat while referring to the remarks of Malik, has expressed astonishment that such presumption have come from such high office.
Bhat said PDP has always put the electorate above everything as a vital democratic component and has never shied away from taking very active part in the electoral fray. “It is the agenda of the party alone which gave people relief from the anarchic rule of the past regimes in the state. In both sittings of our government under Mufti Sahib and Mehbooba Ji, we as the party strengthened the democratic institutions and rebuilt peoples trust in justice and fair-play,” he said.
The PDP leader added that people of Jammu and Kashmir have acknowledged the role of PDP and this is the party’s firm belief that there is no substitute to popular government. “People want to get out of the confusion and mess and election is the only way out,” Bhat asserted.
