SRINAGAR: Senior Congress leader G N Monga said Congress will participate in the upcoming municipal and panchayat elections. However he added that the situation is also bad. “Government is responsible for the situation”, Monga told PTK. Monga said that, “Congress party had decided to take part in the polls to "keep the BJP and RSS away".
He added, “We can’t allow RSS and BJP to take control in Kashmir which is the reason congress take part in election”.
