LS Polls : Dad’s workers will ensure my victory : Mehbooba

Srinagar, Apr 23 : Former chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti Tuesday exuded confidence that people will once again vote her to ensure her victory.

After casting ballots in Bijbehara area of South Kashmir’s Anantnag district, Mehbooba said that “this time my father Late Mufti Muhammad Sayeed is not with me but his workers who have worked for him are still there.”

“I hope the workers of my father will ensure my victory in this election,” Mehbooba told reporters.
Asked about low voter turnout in the polls today in Bijbehara, which is her home constituency, Mehbooba said, “I am hopeful of good results.”

Mehbooba is among the 18 candidates who are in fray for South Kashmir Lok Sabha constituency.

Earlier in previous 2014 parliamentary elections, Mehbooba emerged victorious but later she took oath as first woman Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, leaving the MP seat vacant.

The parliamentary by-election for the Anantnag was not held since then keeping in view of the situation in South Kashmir.
