Shah Faisal told media reporters that instead of taking part in the elections they will strengthen the party.

However, Dr.Faisal urged people to come out in large numbers to participate in voting process and choose the right candidate.

Dr. Shah Faisal condemned the recent death of a school teacher allegedly in police custody, alsalmost in the same period of time, the killing of a 12-year-old boy by militants after being taken hostage during an encounter in Hajin area of Bandipora district.
