Latest from national conference
The voting for 30-seats hill council, earlier scheduled on September 10, will now take place on October 4; nominations shall be filed from September 9 to 16
Two days ago, the Supreme Court in its order had directed that fresh election notification be issued for the Hill Development Council polls and also allowed the National Conference to use its party symbol “plough” in these polls
Omar Abdullah said nobody can change the name of the country from ‘India’ to ‘Bharat’. “To do this, you will have to change the constitution,” he said.
The Supreme Court has allowed the National Conference to contest the upcoming elections in Kargil on its reserved party symbol and directed a fresh poll notification to be issued within a week. The court criticized the Ladakh administration for not allotting the symbol despite a favorable order from the high court. The NC was denied permission to contest on its reserved symbol as it is not a recognized state party in Ladakh. The court imposed a cost of ₹1 lakh on the Ladakh administration and stated that elections should be independent and free from extraneous influence.
