No democracy could exist without elections in J&K, says Karan Singh



Senior Congress leader Dr Karan Singh on Monday demanded early assembly elections in Indian illegally occupied Jammu & Kashmir.

Talking to reporters at party’s Srinagar headquarters, Singh said that democracy cannot be ensured without the elections in Jammu and Kashmir, so all parties here have been demanding immediate conduct of the polls. “We have been hearing that the elections will be conducted in March next year, but there is no official confirmation yet. Congress and other parties have been demanding early polls and they should be held at an earliest,” he said.

About the inclusion of non-local voters in J&K, he said that there is confusion over it and the things are not clear, so he cannot comment anything on the issue. Singh said the government has been making claims about the developmental progress in the territory, but on ground it may take some time to see the impact.—KMS
