J&K Election Commissioner K K Sharma yesterday reviewed the preparations and other arrangements for the counting process. He has informed that the Returning Officers will be in-charge of the counting process for each DDC constituency. According to PTI, he has also said that the counting of ballot papers would be taken up on a round-wise basis after proper mixing of ballot papers from different polling stations as per the prescribed procedure and counting guidelines.

The DDCs elections witnessed a spirited campaign by the BJP, Congress and Gupkar Alliance — an alliance formed by regional parties to collectively fight for the restoration of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP and Farooq Abdullah-led National Conference are also part of the Gupkar Alliance.

Ahead of the counting of votes, J&K Governor Manoj Sinha thanked and congratulated the people, especially the first-time voters, independent candidates and political parties for strengthening grass-root democracy and paving way for progressive future of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. He said the three-tier democracy will make J&K modern and ‘aatmanirbhar’, besides giving a determined push to the developmental process.

“I am sure the elected representatives will give momentum to the developmental schemes on the ground,” he said in a series of tweets.
