National Conference spokesman Junaid Mattu on Tuesday resigned from the party following a “disagreement” with the party's decision to boycott the upcoming ULB and Panchayat Polls.

“Based on my humble disagreement with the party’s decision to boycott the upcoming ULB and Panchayat Polls, I have just sent my resignation from the party to the JKNC General Secretary,” Matoo wrote on his Twitter handle. 

“I strongly believe that leaving our grassroots democratic institutions open to misrepresentation would inflict serious harm on the State and also wreak havoc with our social fabric and cultural legacy,” he wrote.

“I will announce my candidature for the ULB elections from Srinagar tomorrow in sha Allah and I remain committed to serving my people and helping the city I grew up in meet the challenges it’s faced with. I won’t be addressing the media or taking any questions today,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, National Conference accepted the resignation of Mattu.
