Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) chief, G A Mir Wednesday said that National Conference and Congress are contesting the elections separately as there is no friendly contest between the two parties.
While addressing a press Conference today at party headquarters here in Srinagar, Mir told reporters that the parties are fighting elections on their own as one of the party has announced its candidates while the other (Congress) has also announced its candidates for some seats and will announce others in two days.
He added there is no friendly contest between the two parties here, adding that on some Lok Sabha seats, there will be no contest between the parties.
Mir added that Congress will go before people with its agenda while NC will seek votes on their agenda.
Furthermore, Mir said that “Rahul Gandhi has announced the minimum wage scheme for the whole of India, promising 6000 Rs per month that amounts to Rs 72000 per year. We will prove it and act as we have proven.”
“Mega scheme will benefit 20 percent of India’s total population and covering five crore households, which means almost 25 crore of population will benefit from the scheme,” he said.
“As soon we come in power, nation will see how we act. It is not a Jhumla bazi of BJP and neither their promised 15 lacs to all,” Mir said.
Earlier, several persons including academicians, political leaders joined Congress in presence of the JKPCC chief and other party leaders.
