Iltija Mufti Highlights Lok Sabha Elections as a Critical Voice for Kashmiris


Srinagar, Iltija Mufti, Media Advisor to the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and President of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti, emphasized that the upcoming Lok Sabha elections are a vital opportunity for the people of the region to express their pent-up sentiments and emotions.



According to Kashmir Media Service, speaking at a party event in Gopalpora, Islamabad district, Iltija Mufti expressed concerns over the suppression of voices in Jammu and Kashmir, which she likened to an “open-air jail.” She noted that the forthcoming elections are particularly significant as they are the first substantial electoral exercise in five years, the only other being the District Development Council (DDC) elections.



Iltija also praised her mother, Mehbooba Mufti, as the sole politician in the region who has consistently voiced her opinions, despite facing repercussions. This statement underscores the charged atmosphere surrounding the electoral process in a region marked by prolonged political and security challenges.
