Jammu, Dec 28: Panther Party leader Prof Bhim Singh on Monday said that the recently concluded DDC polls were the gross violation of 73rd and 74th amendments.
Talking to reporters in winter capital Jammu, Singh asserted that the recently held DDC polls tantamount to gross violation of 73rd and 74th amendments of Panchayati Raj Act.

He said Panthers Party will knock the doors of Supreme Court and file an appeal for providing justice to people of J&K. He further said that it is prime demand of Panthers Party to conduct assembly polls besides restoration of statehood at an earliest.
He at the occasion lauded the massive participation of electorates from Kashmir and added “Kashmiris gave appropraite reply to communal forces in DDC polls”, he said. (KNS)
