Srinagar, June 29, 2021: After distancing itself from Muzaffar Hussain Baig, Peoples Conference is likely to withdraw support to his wife Safina Baig, who is chairperson of the district development council, Baramulla.
Sources told news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that PC leadership has begun efforts to oust Safina as chairperson of DDC, Baramulla.
“We will hold confabulations with our DDC members to discuss future strategy. Our leaders Sajad Gani Lone, Imran Reza Ansari, Syed Basharat Bukhari, Abdul Gani Vakil, Raja Ejaz Ali and Muhammad Abbas would take a final call on the matter,” a senior party leader told KNO.
He said the party’s district leaders have conveyed to the top leadership that continuing support to Safina would be a political blunder.
Safina, who fought DDC election as an independent candidate, managed to become chairperson of DDC Baramulla with support of Peoples Conference, Apni Party and cross-voting by members of Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) in her favour.
In the 14-member Council, PC has three members, National Conference, Apni Party, Congress and Peoples Democratic Party have two members each and three are independents—(KNO)
