The Congress said on Wednesday that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir was not conducive for holding municipal and Panchayat elections.
State party President G.A. Mir told the media after a meeting of the Congress core group: “The situation is not conducive for holding municipal and Panchayat polls.”
Mir said the elections were declared without taking stock of the ground situation.
“The central government and state administration should make clear their stand whether they want to conduct the elections or is it just a gimmick.”
