Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, former chief ministers of J&K, have been named to the INDIA alliance, a coalition of opposition parties, coordination committee and election strategy committee, respectively.
Omar and Mehbooba have been chosen to serve on the opposition alliance’s coordination committee and election strategy committee, according to the news source Kashmir News Observer (KNO).
If reports are to be believed, National Conference will refuse to give any Kashmiri Lok Sabha seat to any other member of the coalition.
NC defeated PC in Baramulla, PDP in Srinagar, and Congress in South Kashmir’s Anantnag Lok Sabha seat to win all three of Kashmir’s Lok Sabha seats in the most recent parliamentary election. In the race for the Anantnag Lok Sabha seat, PDP finished third.
Hasnain Masoodi has been added by the opposition alliance as a member of the coalition’s campaign committee.
Ifra Jan of the National Conference and Iltija Mufti, the daughter of Mehbooba Mufti, the president of the PDP, have reportedly been named as members of the working group for social media.
Members of the working committee on media include Tanvir Sadiq of the NC and Mohit Bhan of the PDP.
