The final result of the District Development Council (DDC) election in Jammu and Kashmir has been released. The position of 278 seats out of 280 is now cleared. Election has been postponed to two seats. The maximum number of 110 seats have gone to the People’s Alliance for Group Declaration (PAGD). BJP has emerged as the largest party in this election by winning 75 seats.

This result is important in many ways. This is because for the first time BJP has won 3 seats in the Valley (Kashmir). On the other hand, in Jammu, which is called the stronghold of the BJP, the Gupta Alliance has succeeded in winning 34 seats. These results are telling that there is a change in the politics of Jammu and Kashmir.

BJP eyeing independent candidate – Omar

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has alleged that the administration is now mobilizing independent candidates for the BJP. This time, 50 independent candidates have won the election. He wrote on social media, ‘Police took a former National Conference MLA. He is not allowing independent candidates to meet. At the same time, some people of the administration are taking the Independent candidates to Srinagar for talks, so that they can be included in the BJP.

Assembly election preparations
These elections of DDC are being seen as a litmus test for the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir. Now there is to be a de limitation of the assembly constituencies.
