J&K minister Sakina seen in a video forcing an old man to vote for her

Srinagar: In an embarrassment for the National Conference party, a video that has recently surfaced, reportedly shows Jammu and Kashmir Social Welfare Minister Sakina Itoo forcing an old man to swear in the name of Allah to vote for her.

Sakina, the only woman minister in the Omar Abdullah government, along with her party workers are seen compelling an old man to support her during the coming elections.

The minister also promised to rehabilitate the man if he worked for her during the elections.

Apparently the man, who seems to be disgruntled with the minister in the video, was later garlanded by the workers. Meanwhile, the video has gone viral on micro-blogging sites.
