Seeks her disqualification from Anantnag LS seat

Srinagar: Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday accused PDP chief Mehbooba Mufit of promoting gun culture during her rally at Budgam and urged the Election Commission of India to disqualify her from Anantnag Lok Sabaha seat.
In a statement, BJP state spokesperson Altaf Thakur alleged that PDP supporter was holding a toy pistol and AK-47 gun in his hands at a PDP led by Mehbooba at Chadoora in Budgam.
He accused Mehoobba of promoting militancy in her poll rallies.
Thakur said that it is unfortunate that for the greed of power, Mehbooba was playing militancy card to garner support from people. “This way, PDP is promoting gun culture in Kashmir just to befool people and to seek votes,” he added.
Thakur said that chief electoral officer and the Election Commission of India must look into the issue on priority and immediately disqualify the PDP president by cancelling her nomination papers. He said BJP will strongly opposed any move aimed at promoting the gun culture.
