J&K leader's instigating comments: 'Don't vote for BJP, it will impose a Hindu Chief Minister'

Jammu and Kashmir
Srinagar, Nov 12: Another controversial statement by a PDP leader has sparked communal tension in the valley. A legislator of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) Peer Mansoor asked the people not to vote for the BJP as it will impose a Hindu chief minister on the state.

Calling it a curse for the people of Jammu and Kashmir, he said,"People should not to vote for parties who plan to foist a Hindu chief minister in Jammu and Kashmir which would be a curse for the Kashmiris."

Following this statement, the BJP appealed to the Election Commission, asking it to take action against such communal propaganda. BJP Spokesperson Khalid Jehangir said,"We request the Election Commission to take strict action against such leaders who are playing communal card. This is not good for the integrity of the country."

"BJP will be a curse on the valley if elected"

PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti distances herself from the statement, saying that she did not have any idea who said it. "I don't know who said that, I haven't heard it," she said.

Mansoor is a sitting MLA from from Shangus town in the Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir. He has also fielded him for the upcoming assembly elections by the PDP in the state. 

Meanwhile, unknown men allegedly fired at Kulgam BJP candidate's house in South Kashmir while he was away. However, it is unclear what was the motive behind the firing.
