"The ECI has become a puppet in the hands of the BJP. We want ECI to work independently", Tony told reporters here.
Tony, who sat on dharna along with other leaders, said, ECI is ready to hold elections of the panchayat, corporation, town area committee, MP, DDC and BDC. What is the problem in holding Assembly elections?"
Questioning the Commission, Tony demanded the restoration of democratic government in the Union Territory by holding the Assembly elections.
We should get our justice and have an elected government in Jammu and Kashmir, he said.
