Counting starts for 6 Lok Sabha seats in J&K

Counting of votes for the six Lok Sabha seats spread over
the Kashmir Valley as well as Jammu and Ladakh regions started on Thursday

Extraordinary security arrangements have been made around
the counting centres in Srinagar, Baramulla and Anantnag while the usual
three-tier security is maintained around the counting centres for Jammu,
Udhampur and Ladakh Lok Sabha seats.

Counting for the Ladakh seat is being held simultaneously at
Leh and Kargil towns.

The fate of senior politicians whose electoral fortunes
would be decided include the four-time Chief Minister and National Conference
President Farooq Abdullah, who is seeking re-election from Srinagar.

In Anantnag, former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti of the PDP
faces Ghulam Ahmed Mir of the Congress and Justice (Retired) Hasnain Masoodi of
the NC.

Mehbooba Mufti faces the most serious challenge of her
political career in this election.

Another constituency being closely watched is Udhampur where
BJP’s Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State (MoS) is seeking re-election.

Singh faces a serious challenge from Vikramaditya Singh of the Congress.
