He said in order to undo the apprehensions being expressed by several stakeholders, the EC or the Chief Electoral Officer of Jammu and Kashmir should issue bulletin to this effect on daily basis to keep everybody informed about the number of forms issued to the migrant voters which was must for a transparent election process.

The party spokesman said the EC should take all necessary measures to uphold the sanctity of election process and to avoid any sort of malpractice during the process.
