After poll remark row, Mufti pats EC, Adm for successful pollsJAMMU: After caught into the controversy by giving credit to Pakistan and Hurriyat for J-K elections, Chief Minister Mufti Mohmmad Sayeed today gave full credit to Election Commission and state administration for successful polls.

“I want to thank the Election Commission and state administration people who were involved in the election here,” Mufti told Legislative Assembly here today.

“They were instrumental in clearest, ensuring fairest possible elections in Jammu and Kashmir. There were people who lost by 100 votes or won by 100 votes. Just 100-150 vote margins,” Mufti said.

Soon after sworn-in as a Chief Minister of J&K on March 1, Mufti was caught in a major controversy over his remarks giving credit to Pakistan, elements from across the border and Hurriyat for successful polls in Jammu and Kashmir.

“The people have developed faith in destiny of voter slips and in the institution of democracy and also on our agenda and integrity,” he said

He further said that he wants to say this Assembly has an important character and he doesn’t want to fight with those people, who have given us responsibility in Indian constitution and J&K constitution to choose their Assembly.

“Those who areā€¦ I don’t want to fight them. But I want to say that this Assembly is the most powerful institution. It is our identity,” he said, probably referring to separatists.-PTI
