Some representatives want me to sign documents for illegal constructions: SMC Mayor

SRINAGAR: Srinagar Municipal Corporation Mayor, Junaid Azim Mattu on Thursday claimed that National Conference and Bhartiya Janta Party were in a secret alliance and some representatives want him to sign illegal documents and allow illegal constructions as well.

Addressing a news conference said some representatives are forcing him to sign illegal documents and also allow illegal activities within the City.

“Our differences according to them will end only if I sign the documents and permit the illegal constructions and other activities,” he said. Mayor further said the government had stated that the family rule will be put to an end, however, NC leaders involved in bribery are being openly shielded.

“If NC has a secret alliance with BJP then why don’t they make an open announcement in this regard? If NC is the way for change in Kashmir then we will bid adieu to politics,” he said.

He alleged that the incumbent Deputy Mayor and NC leader, Parvaiz Qadri was involved in bribery as he has taken over Rs 1 crore from the people so far.

“Enough proof has been given to the police in this regard, but, I don’t know for what reasons action is being delayed,” Mattu said.
