A day ahead of polls, Congress issues advertisement in Kashmiri language to seek votes for INDIA alliance candidates

Srinagar, May 12 (UNI) In a bid to woo the voters of Kashmir valley, the Congress has issued an advertisement in the Kashmiri language ‘Ath Badlave Tamaam Halat’ “ Hand will change all situations”, seeking votes for the INDIA alliance candidates.
Srinagar Parliamentary constituency will go for polls on Monday where INDIA alliance’s National Conference candidate Aga Ruhullah Syed is contesting a multi cornered election and pitched against the prominent candidates of Peoples Democratic Party youth leader Waheed-Ur-Rehman Parra and Apni Party’s Ashraf Mir.
The Congress advertisement appeared in a local vernacular Kashmiri newspaper “Kahwat” in Srinagar urging the youth to give “reply with your vote” ‘Jawab deev Vote Seet’, “poll your vote in favour of Congress” ‘Panun Vote deev Congressus’ to woo the people of Kashmir in their language a day ahead of the Srinagar Parliamentary constituency goes to polls.
The advertisement showed the photographs of Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi raising their hands with a smile on their faces appealing to the voters, especially the youth of Kashmir seeking a change with the power of right.
The advertisement has also raised the slogans of ‘youth without jobs’, ‘inflation that has broken the backbone of common people’, ‘bad condition of Farmers’, and ‘attack on the reservation of women folk’ in the Kashmiri language.
While a National Party, which is not even contesting polls, has issued an appeal to voters in the Kashmiri language, all other regional parties have not made any such appeal in Kashmiri.
