Chairman of Peoples Democratic Front Hakeem Yaseen has said that the ensuing Parliamentary elections have provided a golden opportunity to defeat communal forces. Addressing a series of public meetings in Khansahib constituency, Yaseen said that the people of the state should present a joint face against “divisive forces” and inflict a crushing defeat to them.
Yaseen said that the need of the hour is to ensure that people’s mandate doesn’t get fragmented which would benefit communal and divisive forces . “Under these conditions, one fails to understand why some political parties of the state have decided to go for a friendly contests which may cause division of votes only,” he added.
Hakeem Yaseen has also criticised the present central and state governments for banning JKLF and Jamat-i-Islami in the state.
