He said that delimitation has been carried out against the aspirations of people. Dr Farooq Abdullah was talking to media persons at Malik Mohalla Kupwara. He hoped that the new delimitation which is set to be carried out in 2026, a separate parliament constituency is granted to district Kupwara, Bandipora, Rajouri-Poonch and Chenab valley.

To a question, the NC President said that the condition of border areas of Kupwara is pathetic. “I was in Karnah last night where I came across the miserable conditions of people. Youth with the highest education degrees are sitting idle having no jobs in their hands. If the National Conference comes to power we will certainly work for the betterment of people living in far-off places like Karnah,” he said.

The former Chief Minister said that inflation has caused severe problems for the people and that concrete steps are needed to be taken to redress it so that people can live a dignified life.

“National Conference has always stood for the dignity and development of people which did not go well for many and that is why BJP has fielded proxy candidates against NC, knowing that they can’t win the election,” Dr Farooq Abdullah added.

He said the Election Commission of India (ECI) should take necessary steps with regard to bringing the right result before the people.While referring to the government at centre, he said that BJP has come to power with only 37 percent of vote and the rest number of people were dejected with the policies of central government. “I hope a new government comes to power in Delhi after the results are announced on 4th June,” he added.

“National Conference is always ready for assembly elections. They talk about ‘one poll one nation’, we requested them to apply the same here but they did not agree,” Dr Farooq Abdullah said.
