The Election Commission has decided to hold only Lok Sabha elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Congress, National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have slammed the Centre for not holding the assembly polls along with the parliamentary elections. These parties have criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi over this saying:

“EC’s decision is the reflection of Modi government’s failure of Kashmir policy. This shows “mishandling” of the security situation and “surrendering” to militants and separatists.

PDP president and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said, “Decision to hold only parliamentary elections in J&K confirms sinister designs of Government of India.”


Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir National Conference and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah has tweeted his views on the forthcoming LS elections.

Omar Abdullah also slammed the government and said that the prime minister’s “abject surrender” to the anti-India forces is “a crying shame”.
