3/17/2017 11:46:10 PM
Jehangir Rashid Early Times Report SRINAGAR, Mar 17: When the Election Commission of India (ECI) sounded the bugle for by-polls for Srinagar-Budgam and Anantnag-Pulwama Lok Sabha seats, Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) said that it will field candidates for both the seats. However, as on date it seems that the party has decided not to fight the elections. This has become evident with delay in announcing the names of candidates for the two Lok Sabha seats going to polls next month. Sources told Early Times that the decision of National Conference and Congress to fight the elections jointly has forced the BJP leadership to re-think over its initial plan of fighting the up-coming parliamentary elections. As such on date it seems that BJP has given up its plan to fight the by-polls for Central Kashmir and South Kashmir Lok Sabha seats. "The state unit of BJP has been maintaining that the decision to take part in the elections would be taken by the central leadership. Given the fact that top notch leaders of BJP in New Delhi are in constant touch with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Pres...
