In what could be termed as a major victory for Indian democracy, Sajjad Lone has decided to contest the elections from Baramulla. This change of heart is after seeing the turnout in the recent assembly election which witnessed a 68% turnout. Sajjad Lone was so far a staunch supporter of boycotting the elections and conseidered close to Mirwaiz Farooq who will be dissappointed that Lone is going to fight these elections. Lone is saying that he now wants to further his agenda from within the framework of Indian Democracy. Hope more separatists turn around and join main stream politics. They will then realize what it means live in a democracy and to have the freedom of speach and expression rather than ally with a country on the brink of collapse and a takeover by the Taliban.
