Geelani appeals for boycott of municipal, Panchayat elections

Srinagar: Appealing people to boycott every election, be it Panchayat, Assembly or Parliament, Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani has said that “it provides Indian leadership an opportunity for changing the demography and discourse of Jammu and Kashmir, state subject law and economic exploitation.

He claimed the  people who participate in the such elections are not sincere and they just play with the sentiments of the people for their petty gains, Syed Ali Geelani added.

Geelani in a statement asked youth to remain cautious about the sinister designs of “anti-movement elements and urged people to boycott upcoming elections, exhibit steadfastness and keep away from these sham elections. He said participation in these elections is tantamount to “treason with the blood of martyrs”.

“Indian authorities are misleading world community by portraying people’s participation in elections as a verdict in their favour,” he said. It is prerequisite to convey a strong message to world community that we pursue a cherished mission of freedom and in no way, justify, defend or favour these elections, said Syed Ali Geelani.

Paying rich tributes to Martyrs of Kulgam Qazigund, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Monday said “our youth lay their lives to end the age-old slavery of their nation and for right to self-determination”.

In a telephonic address to mourners, Hurriyat chairman paid glorious tributes to martyred youth Raouf Ahmad Gani and reiterated his pledge to take the ongoing movement to its logical end.

“We will never allow any body to barter with the precious blood of martyrs, said Syed Ali Geelani. We need to be aware of this and we are duty bound to safe guard their sacrifices and should desist from such activities which prove harmful for our movement”, added Syed Ali Geelani.
