He said being a Mayor of the city it is incumbent upon me to reach out to people and listen to their grievances. “This is a part of democracy to engage non-voters of Srinagar into democratic process. I often remain engage to meet my people and listen their grievances. However some elements do not digest my reach out efforts and tries to resort allegations”, he said.

This is all baseless and far from realities”, he added. (KNS)
