Srinagar, Aug 22: On expected lines, Jammu & Kashmir Apni Party stayed away from an all-party meeting underway in Srinagar to discuss the issue of inclusion of non-locals in electoral rolls of Jammu & Kashmir.
Sources said that no leader from Apni Party is attending the meeting chaired by NC president Dr. Farooq Abdullah to discuss the issue of voting rights to non-locals.
“It is a futile exercise. Why should we attend the meeting? Our party is satisfied with the clarification issued by the government,” a leader of the party, wishing not to be named said.
It is pertinent to mention that Shiv Sena is also attending the meeting.kno
