Srinagar, September 15 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik will soon start a sustained election boycott campaign on social media with only one key slogan – ‘No election, only right to self-determination’.

This was announced by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while addressing a gathering in Srinagar. He said New Delhi must understand that it can no longer woo people through cheap slogans of sarak, bijli, pani (roads, electricity and water) as Kashmiris are not interested in any polls – local bodies, panchayat, Kashmir Assembly or Indian Parliament. “All elections announced for Kashmir are nothing but a farce aimed at diluting the basic nature of Kashmir dispute,” he pointed out. »
