    J&K DDC Election Results 2020: Independent candidates have emerged as big winners in Jammu and Kashmir's maiden District Development Council polls. The independents have won 49 of 280 seats. Among the big Independent wins is Taranjit Singh defeating BJP's two-time MLA and former minister Sham Lal Choudhary in Suchetgarh in Jammu region by a slender margin of 11 votes. Though the BJP maintained its supremacy by emerging as the single largest party with 74 seats and is leading in another seat, the defeat of its stalwarts Choudhary and another former minister Shakti Raj Parihar, who lost from two constituencies in Doda district, has come as a shock for it. Choudhary lost to Singh by a razor-thin margin. Singh polled 12,969 votes against Choudhary's 12958. Choudhary, who originally hailed from Bhimber Tehsil in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir before his family migrated to border village Chakroi in R S Pura sector, had won Suchetgarh assembly seat for the first time in 2008 and repeated the performance for the party in 2014. The independent candidates have won a total of 49 seats and one more is leading in another seat in Poonch district.Another major defeat for the BJP was Parihar losing to his NC rival Asim Hashmi from Gundana segment and Congress opponent from Marmat seat Mushtaq Ahmad, both falling in Doda district, as the day-long counting witnessed a see-saw battle between him and his opponents. Former MLA Shah Mohammad Tantray, who had resigned from the PDP early this year, was defeated by independent candidate Riyaaz Choudhary, who polled 3,829 votes against 2,898 by him in Loran constituency of Poonch district. Independent candidate Avtar Singh was the luckiest among the contestants as he won by just three votes. Avtar Singh polled 246 votes against 243 by his NC rival Ali Mohammad Bhat to become the winner from Dadsara constituency in Pulwama district of south Kashmir. From the same district, BJP's Minha Latief won by 14 votes against her PDP rival Ruqaya Bano. Lateef polled 364 votes, while Bano got 350 votes. The BJP has won three seats from the Kashmir Valley for the first time.

    DDC poll trends, results eye-opener for BJP: Omar Abdullah

    Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday termed the results and emerging trends of the District Development Council polls as an eye-opener for the BJP and its "proxy political party", and said people have rejected the decision of revoking the erstwhile state's special status. Abdullah, who is the vice president of the National Conference (NC), told PTI that the results and trends are an "important milestone" for the People's Alliance on Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) as they endorse the "out view" that revoking the special status of the erstwhile state of J-K and downgrading it into a Union Territory was not accepted by the people. "Now if the BJP and its proxy political party believe in democracy, as they have stated, they should immediately reverse their decision and respect the verdict of the people of this region," he said. The NC leader said that the BJP had flown in a number of Union ministers and central leaders to campaign for the DDC elections. "The BJP is the one which turned these elections as a referendum of its policy of 2019. I hope they have understood the desire of the people," he said. On August 5 last year, the Centre had revoked the special status of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir and divided it into union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. The PAGD is leading in 71 seats and has won 25 so far whereas the BJP is leading in 48 and has won eight seats till now. The Congress is leading in 19 seats and had bagged four seats so far. The PAGD is an alliance of seven political parties of Jammu and Kashmir, including the NC and the People's Democratic Party. (PTI)

    People of Kashmir have exhibited faith in PM Modi: J-K BJP

    Congratulating party candidates who registered victories in the District Development Council (DDC) elections, Jammu and Kashmir BJP general secretary Vibodh Gupta said the people of the Valley have exhibited their faith in the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The BJP on Tuesday won an election for the first time from any seat in Kashmir while facing regional heavyweights like the National Conference and the PDP. Aijaz Hussain won the Khonmoh-II District Development Council seat in Srinagar, while Aijaz Ahmad Khan gave the party more reason to cheer by winning the Tulail seat in Bandipora district. 'The people of Kashmir exhibited their faith in Hon'ble PM Narendra Modi's vision of naya Kashmir, and sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwas,' Gupta, who is also party's in-charge for Kashmir, said. He said the victories mark a 'change of wave' in the Valley. 'This victory belongs to the party workers of Kashmir who have shed their blood fighting a tough battle against terrorism,' the BJP leader said. 'BJP's maiden victories in DDC elections in Kashmir speak of two stories -- one of a tough fight by the Bharatiya Janata Party, marking the beginning of a new era in the valley, and the other of conveying a strong message to Gupkar Gang that the end of their communal and divisive politics is near,' he claimed.

    DDC Election Result Jammu and Kashmir: PDP youth president Waheed Para, who is in custody of the National Investigation Agency for alleged links with militants, has won the District Development Council elections from Pulwama district. Para defeated BJP candidate Sajad Ahmad Raina. PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said she was proud of her party's youth leader to register a win. "Couldn't be prouder of PDP's @parawahid who won his maiden election by a huge margin of votes. Despite being arrested on baseless charges right after filing his nomination people have shown their love & trust for Waheed. Hope justice prevails," Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.

    Para was arrested by the NIA on November 25, a few days after filing nomination papers as a People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration candidate. The NIA had said Para was arrested in connection with the Naveed Babu-Davinder Singh case for supporting Hizbul Mujahideen in conspiracy with the other accused persons. Para was considered to be a key motivator for youth to join mainstream politics in Pulwama and adjoining Shopian districts of south Kashmir when militancy was raising its head there again. As secretary of Jammu and Kashmir Sports Council from 2016 to 2018, Para played a major role in organising sporting events in nook and corner of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state which included the Ladakh region.

    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)
