 Chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti today filed her nomination papers for the Anantnag by-election, which is due on June 16.

Mehbooba was flanked by her party men as she filed her nomination papers on Wednesday afternoon.
 
This will be the fourth assembly election for the 57-year chief minister, who has a track record of winning all the polls she has contested in her 26-year career.
 
Currently Mehbooba is a member of parliament from Anantnag.
 
Opposition National conference and Congress has vowed to put up strong candidates against her. Even maverick independent MLA Engineer Rashid has promised to contest against the chief minister from Anantnag.
