SRINAGAR, December 4(KNS): Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Friday condemned the attack on Anees-ul-Islam Party's contesting candidate for DDC elelctions from Sagaam-Kokernag in district Anantnag.

In a statement issued here, Bukhari said such violent incidents add to the miseries and sufferings of people and cannot be condoned by anyone in civilized society across the world.

“This dastardly attack on our contesting candidate is a manifestation of frustration among forces inimical to peace and rising popularity of the Apni Party among the people,” he said while urging the government to take serious cognizance of this incident and take all necessary security measures in this regard.

Bukhari said those involved in this incident should not be allowed to go scot free and the administration must identify and nab the culprits behind such attacks and book them under stringent laws.

He said that the attack on unarmed grass root level political activists is a show of cowardice which cannot be justified by any means and philosophies patronizing such attackers.

He expressed solidarity with the family of Anees-ul-Islam and prayed for his speedy recovery .

Bukhari also sought a thorough security review for vulnerable political workers who reside in more violence prone areas in J&K. “The J&K government should take a review of the security situation and take measures to prevent recurrence of such attacks in future,” he added.
Meanwhile, Senior Vice-President Ghulam Hassan Mir has also strongly condemned the attack on the Apni Party candidate.
Mir has demanded a high level investigation into the incident and adequate security cover for the contesting candidates of the party in the ongoing DDC polls(KNS).
