Sajad Lone Demands FIR Against Farooq Abdullah for 1987 Election Manipulation

SRINAGAR: People’s Conference chief Sajad Gani Lone on Wednesday emphasised that initiating a case against National Conference president Farooq Abdullah and other individuals involved in the alleged rigging of the 1987 Jammu and Kashmir Assembly polls would represent the most significant confidence-building measure for the people of Kashmir.

“I strongly believe that even today the biggest CBM towards Kashmiris would be the registration of an FIR against Farooq Abdullah, Congress leaders and bureaucrats who rigged the 1987 election. After all, one lakh people have died,” Lone told reporters in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.

Lone said his father, Abdul Gani Lone, was a political person who gave up on electoral politics after the 1987 polls.

“My father participated in elections till 1987 but not after that. That is why we do not use his photos in our campaign. We respect his stand,” he said.
