The Joint Resistance Leadership has hailed the people for rejection  rejection and boycott of the “sham” ULB elections forced by government of India  held in J&K, and the complete protest shutdown against it.

In a statement, JRL comprising of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik  said that this election violated the very definition of the democratic process, making a mockery of it as the identity of the contesting representatives is not known to the public nor the area going to polls. “Secrecy manipulation and bribery are the hallmark of this twisted exercise.”

The JRL said that dismissing of this “farcical exercise” which in reality is a “military operation to legitimise Govt of India’s forcible control”, shows people’s unwavering commitment to their struggle for self determination and their political maturity.

Adding that it should be clear to those arrogant of their military power and unyielding to fundamental human principles, that Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute the resolution of whose is pending before the UN.
