Ghulam Nabi Azad, chief of Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) and former Congress leader, will not contest the Lok Sabha elections, his party has said. Mr Azad was expected to contest from the Anantnag-Rajouri seat in Jammu and Kashmir.

The contest in Anantnag was expected to be his first test of popularity in Jammu and Kashmir since he quit the Congress in 2022.

DPAP said Mr Azad has some reasons not to contest – though the party did not divulge the reasons. DPAP’s provincial president, Kashmir, Mohammad Amin Bhat said he gave “some reasons” at a meeting. The party then took the decision to field Mohammad Saleem Parray from the seat.

Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and People’s Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti and National Conference senior leader Mian Altaf will now face off from the Anantnag-Rajouri seat.
