Srinagar, Senior PDP leader and Finance Minister Dr Haseeb

Drabu also party incharge of South Kashmir parliamentary constituency
held a marathon meeting of the party legislators including MLAs and
MLCs of South Kashmir parliamentary constituency comprising Anantnag,
Pulwama, Shopian and Kulgam districts to redraw the strategy for the
upcoming bye elections to Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency rescheduled
by Election Commission for May 25.
When contacted, Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu, confirmed the conduct of the meeting that was attended among others by senior PDP leaders including
Revenue Minister Ab Rehman Veeri and party Vice President Sartaj Madni assisting Drabu on poll plans in Anantnag parliamentary constituency.
He said that the meeting was convened to redraw the strategy for bye
polls to Anantnag parliamentary constituency postponed in the back
drop of violent incidents in Srinagar parliamentary constituency on
last Sunday when the polling was conducted.
Replying to a question on the timing of election, Drabu said though people of all shades of opinion were unanimous on deferment of bye polls keeping in view the timing of the holy month of Ramadan to be followed by Eid-Ul-Fitr and the annual Amaranth Yatra, but Election Commission has the authority
to take a final call on its own judgment of the situation in Kashmir. (KNS)
