Anantnag, Apr 03: Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has filed her nomination from Anantnag parliamentary constituency for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019.

The nomination papers can be filed from March 28 to April 4, while the scrutiny of the nominations will be held on April 5. The last date for withdrawal of candidature is April 8.

Kashmir has witnessed an increase in violence following the 2016 unrest, leading to the postponement of the byelections to the Anantnag constituency, which fell vacant after Mehbooba Mufti's resignation when she took over as the CM after her father Mufti Sayeed's death.
