Srinagar: Senior National Conference leader and party’s Lok Sabha candidate from Anantnag-Rajouri seat, Mian Altaf on Saturday said that he was recovering and is ready to contest in the upcoming polls.

In a brief video, Mian Altaf, said that he was not feeling good for the last couple of days and was advised to take a rest by the doctors.

However, he said: “I am recovering now and will be contesting Lok Sabha polls.”

The reports earlier claimed that he was not contesting in the elections due to his deteriorating health. Altaf however, termed the reports as baseless stating that he was ready to contest the parliamentary elections.

“Omar Abdullah too met me today at my residence and enquired about my health condition. He didn’t visit here to discuss political issues but inquired about my health condition only,” he said. -(KNO)
