Addressing a media conference in Srinagar on Friday, Mufti said, “On Thursday at 2.30 pm Farooq Abdullah said in a statement if he had bombs and guns he would target PDP leaders as they deserved to be taught a lesson.”

"Same night on Thursday at 11.30 pm a PDP sarpanch was killed in Gulzarpora in Pulwama district. This is one instance. Some days back Farooq Abdullah accused PDP of getting NC workers killed since 1996,” she added.

Mufti, who is contesting the Lok Sabha elections from south Kashmir's Anantnag constituency, said "We have been watching helplessly as the election commission takes notice of every inflammatory statement in any part of the country be it Amit Shah, be it Azam Khan.”

“But when it comes to J&K, we have been writing to them time and again that the NC has been making inflammatory statements..."All the complaints we have been making to the election commission...It seems that the Election Commission is not at all serious about Jammu and Kashmir,” she added.

The PDP chief appealed to the Election Commission to take cognizance of these complaints.

Unidentified gunmen shot dead a PDP activist and Sarpanch outside his residence at Gulzarpora in Awantipora police district of South Kashmir on Thursday night.

This is not the first attack on a village head. Seven village heads have reportedly been gunned down by terrorists in the past.
