Srinagar, Nov 11: The hopping of political activists in poll-bound Jammu and Kashmir continued as ruling National Conference and Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday welcomed defectors from their rivals party.

"PDP leader and its candidate from Tangmarg Constituency in 2008, Sheikh Ghulam Mohiuddin joined National Conference along with hundreds of his supporters and workers," a statement issued by ruling National Conference said.
