The filing of nomination papers by Javed Ahmed Beigh of PDF assumes significance in the political scene of central Kashmir, as constituent parties of so called “Gupkar Declaration” (PAGD ), namely NC and PDP continue to enter into vicious fight over the distribution of DDC seats in Central and rest of Kashmir Valley. In an embarrassment for the PDP, its local leader Nazir Ahmed Khan is reported to have quit PDP over his displeasure of PAGD’s selection of candidate for Beerwah. Unconfirmed reports say that Nazir Ahmed Khan has supposedly joined BJP.
While filing his nomination papers for Beerwah, Javed Ahmed Beigh was flanked by senior party leaders and workers including PDF, party General Secretary: Bashir Ahmad Gampori, party District Coordinator: Haji Bashir Ahmad Chewdari, and senior party leader: Nisar Hussain and Ali Mohammad Dar. And Youth Leader and Social Activist Sukhbir Singh from Attina, Abid Nazir, Tariq Ahmad ,Arjumand Ahmad and hundreds of Youth .

Javed Ahmed Beigh while pointing towards the internal political infighting with in PAGD over the distribution of ticket for Beerwah said, when this so called “People’s Alliance” officially fielded a candidate from National Conference in Beerwah why did PDP district president and Constituency incharge also filed his nomination for the same seat. He alleged that PDP leader is a proxy candidate of BJP.
He asserted that PAGD should come clean on this opportunistic political bickering.He also reiterated that PAGD, which talks of principles and ethics is in reality not interested in the welfare of people and development of Beerwah.
He also emphasized that by filing his nomination on behalf of Hakim Yasin’s PDF, he has also given a tight slap to his detractors, who have been spreading the misinformation of his joining communal forces.
He said that he can never join communal forces and he has full faith in the leadership of Hakim Mohammad Yasin and his secular credentials.
Lastly Javed Ahmed Beigh urged youth, women and elderly citizens from all communities including local Sikh community and Gujjar & Bakarwal biradari to come forward and take the lead in the over all growth and development of Beerwah.
