SRINAGAR (Agencies) - Reiterating that the conduct of elections in the state was a 'non- issue 'Hurriyat Conference led-by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Thursday said that the pro-freedom conglomerate was ready to contest the elections under the supervision of SAARC observers to prove its representative character. We maintain that elections were a non-issue and they cannot change the disputed status of Kashmir. If need be, we are ready to contest the elections under the supervision of SAARC observers to prove our representative character, Acting Chairman, Hurriyat Conference (M) Maulana Abbas Ansari said, while talking to reporters at the party headquarters Rajbagh on Thursday. Ansari said that the Hurriyat Conference (M) was not in favour of the election boycott during last years assembly elections. However, had to do so because of being a part of the Coordination Committee that was formed in wake of the Amarnath land row. He said that the elections were conducted for administrative affairs and the same cannot be the solution to the Kashmir issue. The people voted in the elections only to get their day-to-day problems addressed but India beat the trumpet claiming that people voted for Indian democracy, Ansari said. The parliamentarians or MLAs have no power to address the Kashmir issue, he added. Reacting to the call given by the United Jehad Council (UJC) asking Hurriyat to launch door-to-door anti-election campaign, Ansari said that Hurriyat is a different entity and UJC is different. He said that Hurriyat will let the people decide whether they want to vote or not. Ansari said the UJC led by Syed Salahuddin was confused as the umbrella organisation of various groups fighting for freedom chose not to interfere in the 2008 assembly elections. In 2008, the UJC said they would not interfere with the elections and now they are asking people to boycott them. It is confusing, Ansari told a cable TV channel here. After three days of discussions here, the group announced that the elections were no alternative to the right to self-determination but did not specifically ask Kashmiris to keep away from the polls. The Hurriyat group headed by Syed Ali Geelani has also called for an election boycott in the state, which elects six members to the Lok Sabha including three from the Kashmir valley. In a related development, National Conference president and former puppet chief minister Farooq Abdullah said his priority was to help resume the stalled dialogue between India and Pakistan. My first priority is to work for resumption of the India-Pakistan dialogue, Abdullah said. He said that he would also try to restore the dialogue process between Hurriyat leaders and the union government.
