One candidate of PAGD in each segment, but will fight on own party symbols: Farooq Abdullah

Jammu, Nov 09 (KNS): Chairman of Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration and President National Conference, Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Monday revealed that parties under the banner of PAGD shall contest polls on their own symbols but there will be only one candidate of alliance in each segment .

"Polls have been announced in a hurry and we do not have a common symbol. candidates will contest polls on symbols of their parties," he told reporters. Only one joint candidate will be fielded from each constituency and the candidate will be having the symbol of the party of his association."

The NC President accused BJP of using different tactics to pressurise media houses to run a campaign in their favour.

He also welcomed the election of new president in America and hoped that new US President will rectify all the wrong acts of Donald Trump.

Dr. Farooq also hit hard at BJP leaders for calling him anti—national, " He as well as PAGD is anti-BJP but not Anti-India.
Those calling me anti -Indian should remember that it was Dr. Farooq who represented India in Geneva as well as in UN and then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee appreciated this," veteran Abdullah added—(KNS)
