6 parties clandestine alliance
This is the first time in the history of Jammu and Kashmir, when 6 major parties contested together. After the removal of article 370, these parties have formed a secret alliance. This includes National Conference headed by Dr. Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP besides Sajjad Gani Lone People’s Conference, Awami National Conference, Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement and local unit of CPI-M. At the same time, BJP and Congress fielded their candidates.

Demand of people of Jammu and Kashmir fulfilled
For the people and leaders of Jammu and Kashmir, this election was like a test. There has been a demand for implementing Panchayati Raj for a long time here. Now the government claims that the three-tier system has been fully implemented due to the election of Panchayat, BDC and now DDC. There are a total of 20 districts in Jammu and Kashmir. In each district, 14 areas were created for the DDC.

Main and basic issues
The basic issues of each district in Jammu and Kashmir may be different, but corruption and unemployment are the main issues. The benefits of government schemes in villages, panchayat ghars, schools, hospitals, electricity, water and then agriculture were the electoral issues. In this election, the BJP distributed more votes in the name of the Prime Minister than the candidate.

PAGD came into the fray with issues such as the complete withdrawal of Article 370, the move from Kashmir to special status, the state becoming a union territory.

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. This will be followed by assembly elections. However, this election is being seen purely as a test for BJP, Congress, NC or PDP. The analysis of the results will allow the parties to know where and how much is their political land.
