The Peoples Conference Monday announced its candidates for Baramulla and Srinagar parliament seats. 

A PC spokesman said in a statement that former inspector general of police Raja Aijaz Ali will represent the party from northern Kashmir, while Irfan Reza Ansari will be is candidate for the Srinagar seat.

“The PC’s central election committee met under the chairmanship of SajadGani Lone to deliberate on probables for the upcoming parliament elections. After detailed discussion and thorough consideration, the CEC finalised the names of Raja Aijaz Ali for Baramulla seat and Irfan Reza Ansari for Srinagar seat,” the statement read.

“Ali contested the assembly elections in 2014 from Uri and ended up as runner-up with almost 19000 votes, while prominent businessman and industrialist Irfan Reza Ansari is son of late MoulviIfthikarHussain Ansari and social activist of note. The party leadership expressed full confidence in the ability of its candidates to represent and defend the aspirations and sentiments of the people of J&K in the Parliament,” the statement read, adding: “Peoples Conference will be a breath of fresh air in comparison to the status-quo politics of NC and PDP. We will serve the people with earnest dedication to realise the potential of ‘Kashmiri dreams’ and work hard towards real empowerment of the masses. It is our commitment to improve opportunities for youth and reverse decades of anti-youth policies adapted by successive NC-PDP governments”.
