J&K DDC Election Results 2020 News Updates: National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah today said that the BJP-led central government should listen to the people’s voice against the abrogation of Article 370 since it has itself termed the polls as a victory of democracy. Addressing party workers at NC headquarters, Abdullah said the people have made clear their view by supporting the Gupkar Alliance in the District Development Council polls. The Gupkar Alliance, group of seven parties including NC and PDP, has got a clear majority in six of 20 districts of Jammu and Kashmir. The BJP has got majority in five in the maiden DDC election in Jammu and Kashmir.
The BJP has emerged as the single largest party in Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. It has won 75 seats, 72 in Jammu and 3 in Kashmir. The Gupkar Alliance has got 110 seats. Farooq Abdullah led National Conference has come at the second position by wining 67 seats. The independent candidates have won 49 seats. The Congress have 26 seats.
Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and NC leader Omar Abdullah has said the Gupkar Alliance’s win/leads of 35 seats in Jammu should not be underplayed. His remarks came on BJP’s celebration of 3 seats in Kashmir. In a tweet, he said, ‘I understand the temptation to over play the 3 seats the BJP has won in the valley but why underplay the 35 wins/leads of the @JKPAGD (Gupkar Alliance) in Jammu province. We aren’t Kashmir based parties, we are political parties with strong support in both Kashmir AND Jammu.’

Jammu and Kashmir DDC Election Results: Seven Kashmir-centric mainstream parties, including Farooq Abdullah's National Conference and Mehbooba Mufti's Peoples Democratic Party contested the polls in an alliance under the banner of Gupkar Declaration formed for the restoration of Article 370. The Congress was initially a part of the alliance but distanced itself from the alliance as the BJP targeted the opposition party for being in league with the 'Gupkar Gang'. Although the Congress went alone in the last seven phases, it is widely believed that its understanding with the Gupkar Alliance remains intact. (With agency input)
