Kashmir: pro-India politician resigns after boycott call

Srinagar: A senior leader of National Conference called it quits and joined people in Anantnag, the epicenter of ongoing wave of protests in Kashmir.
The NC leader Iftikhar Misgar had contested against chief minister Mehbooba Mufti in by-poll in June. The joint resistance camp led by Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik had called for social boycott of pro-India camp.
Misgar said, “I am resigning and I am no more part of National Conference. You people are my security. I have withdrawn security and I am with resistance movement,” he said while raising anti-India slogans.
