New Delhi: The Delhi High Court will hear a PIL on Friday against PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and National Conference (NC) leader Omar Abdullah relating to polls.
This seeks a ban on them from participating polls.
The court was hearing the petition which has sought a direction to the Election Commission (EC) to ban the National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from joining the 2019 general elections.
The petition filed by advocate Sanjiv Kumar has also sought direction to book them on various charges including sedition of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The petitioner said allowing these leaders to contest the elections would be a mockery of democracy as these people openly call for sedition to divide India on the basis of religion.
They are demanding two Prime Ministers, one for Jammu and Kashmir and another for the rest of India.
