‘Won’t contest any elections till J&K’s Special Status is restored’ says Mehbooba Mufti

Srinagar Dec 23: Calling the results of the Jammu and Kashmir local polls “very encouraging”, former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said today that she would not contest any election until special status was restored under Article 370.

“When it comes to assembly polls, I will not file any elections until and unless Jammu and Kashmir’s own constitution is brought back, until Article 370 is restored,” Mehbooba Mufti told NDTV.

The former Chief Minister was responding to a question on the Gupkar alliance, which includes National Conference and Mehbooba Mufti’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP), agreeing to a Chief Ministerial candidate amid intense rivalries.

“We have been rivals but for the larger cause of J&K we can all get together. We are Kashmiris at the end of the day. We are not talking only about elections but for the larger cause of restoring what was lost,” Ms Mufti said.

“Whenever assembly polls are held we will sit together and discuss (on Chief Ministership). I am not in the race,” she said.
