Joint candidate of the Congress and National Conference for south Kashmir’s Anantnag parliamentary seat, GA Mir on Tuesday said he would withdraw if the Governor’s rule was not imposed in the state.
Mir on Monday had opposed the deferment of the bypoll in Anantnag.
Talking to the media in Anantnag, Mir said the inability of the PDP-led coalition government in providing a peaceful atmosphere for the byelection had proved Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s failure.
According to sources, Mir will hand over a memorandum to the returning officer of the constituency on Tuesday.
The Election Commission has deferred the Anantnag bypoll to May 25.
