Srinagar, Apr 3: The former chief minister of erstwhile J&K state and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday announced that the party will field its candidates from Lok Sabha constituencies in Kashmir, saying that the candidates will be announced within a few days.

Addressing the media persons, Mehbooba said that National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah has stated that PDP will support them in upcoming Lok Sabha elections, but the fact is the party has not left any door open for it. “According to Omar, PDP doesn’t exist anywhere. Whatever Omar has stated yesterday, could have been conveyed to us earlier. But the way Omar spoke about PDP has anguished my workers, who are not in favour of supporting NC at this juncture,” she said.
