Srinagar: In a major development, Congress has decided to abstain from voting during the no-confidence motion against Srinagar Municipal Corporation mayor Junaid Azam Mattu.

In a statement, the Congress said that it has decided to refrain from voting during the no-confidence motion against Mayor, reported a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer. The move of Congress is seen as an attempt to defeat the no-confidence motion, which has backing of BJP.

Unnamed sources told KNO that Congress decided to abstain after mayor and Peoples Conference spokesman Junaid Azim Mattu met Ghulam Ahmad Mir at his residence in Srinagar.

“Soon after [Mr.] Mattu left [Mr.] Mir’s residence, Sheikh Muhammad Imran also reached there and sought party’s support for no-confidence motion,” they said. “But the party decided to abstain.”

According to sources, the Bharatiya Janata Party is struggling to get numbers and may also decide to abstain from voting. (KNO)
