SRINAGAR, Apr 24: The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) youth president Waheed Rehman Parra and Apni Party candidate Mohammad Ashraf Mir today filed nomination papers from the Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency which is going to polls in the fourth phase of elections on May 13. So far, 17 candidates have filed nominations from the constituency.
Accompanied by senior party leaders, including PDP general secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura, Parra filed the nomination papers before Srinagar Deputy Commissioner Bilal Mohi-ud-Din Bhat, who is the Returning Officer of the constituency.
Talking to reporters later, Parra said the PDP will raise the voice of people of Kashmir in the Parliament.
“In this election, our endeavour is that the people of Kashmir will make Mehbooba Mufti’s team successful so that we raise your voice in the biggest institution and represent your issues there,” he said.

Parra said that the PDP is the only party which has raised the voice of people in the last five years. “Our endeavour is to take this voice to New Delhi, Parliament and to the people of the country,” he added.

Asked about National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah’s jibe that PDP is the ‘C’ team of the BJP, Parra said, “We do not want to lower the political discourse. We also appeal them to balance the discourse. The people here are in distress, they have no interest in such arguments and accusations. They want to know what we can give them.”
“We hope we will win all three seats,” he added.

Apni Party provincial president Kashmir Mohammad Ashraf Mir, also filed his nomination papers for the Srinagar Parliamentary seat today.
After filing his nomination papers, Mir appealed to people to use their votes wisely and reject the traditional parties in these elections.
“I urge people to use their vote wisely and elect Apni Party candidates who are committed to working for the peace, prosperity, and development of Jammu and Kashmir. This is the time for people to reject traditional parties and their leaders, who have been deceiving them for years and decades through deceptive political narratives and false promise,” he told reporters.
“Over the past, these parties kept people busy with emotional slogans like ‘Raishumari’, ‘Autonomy’, ‘Self-rule’, and so on. While keeping people busy with emotional sloganeering and unattainable goals, the leaders of these parties created empires for themselves. They created their family rule here, making the future of their young generations secure. Therefore, it is important people reject these exploitative politicians by the power of their vote,” he added.

The last date for filing nominations for the Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency is April 25, while it goes to polls on May 13. So far, 17 candidates including 14 Independents have filed their nomination papers.
NC candidate Aga Ruhullah is filing his nomination papers tomorrow.
