The CPI (M) leader has forwarded a communication to all the political leaders to attend this meeting.

The meeting comes after a hiatus of over a year.

On September 10 last year, Farooq had chaired an all-party meet over proposed inclusion of non-local voters at his Bhatindi residence here over proposed inclusion of non-locals in the electoral rolls of Jammu and Kashmir, which had stirred a hornet’s nest then.

At that time the all-party meeting in Jammu was said to be the part of an ongoing consultations to come out with a joint strategy to stand united against any move to include outsiders in the electoral rolls in a bid to influence election results.

The final electoral roll of Jammu and Kashmir released on November 22 last year had recorded the highest-ever addition of more than 7.72 lakh voters, that is 10.19% net increase of the registered electors over the draft roll.

The PAGD had convened a similar meeting in Srinagar on August 22, which was attended by the Congress, Shiv Sena and the Akali Dal (Mann), besides all of its constituents.

However, the Sajjad Lone-led People’s Conference and Altaf Bukhari’s Apni Party had stayed away.
