LS poll results can be strange due to direct fight between NDA, regional parties: Azad


Srinagar, Apr 22: Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) chief Ghulam Nabi Azad Monday said the results of the Parliament elections can be strange as there is a direct fight between the NDA and the regional parties in most states of the country.

The former Congress leader said since the Congress government is in just two-three states, in other states, there are different regional parties. So, the contest is with them, he said.

“So, the results can be strange,” he said, adding that he neither favours the NDA nor the bloc.

Azad was talking to reporters in Anantnag district during a roadshow to canvas for party candidate Mohammad Saleem Parray.

“The contest is not the same everywhere. It is different in every state. At most places, it is a direct fight between the NDA and the regional parties. Where there is a Congress government, the fight is between the Congress and the BJP,” he said.

“I know which region or state supports which party. But I do not want to favour any party nor do I want to say anything against any other. We are not with the NDA or the UPA or the INDIA alliance. Our duty is to be neutral,” he said.

Asked if the election results can be unexpected, he said the results are always unexpected.

Meanwhile, the DPAP has announced to field its district president for Srinagar, Amir Bhatt, from the Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency.

Bhatt's candidature was announced after a meeting which was chaired by Azad.
