National Conference won’t take part in civic polls

first_imgThe National Conference has decided not to take part in the recently announced local body polls in Jammu and Kashmir, alleging a nefarious attempt to roll back Article 35A.

The core group of the NC took the decision at a meeting chaired by Farooq Abdullah.last_img
