‘Proper response to Mehbooba Mufti’: Anurag Thakur mocked after Jammu and Kashmir DDC election results
With the Gupkar Alliance winning a clear majority in many of the districts in the Jammu and Kashmir District Development Council election and the BJP emerging as the largest party, both the J&K regional party alliance and the BJP attempted to project the verdict in your favor. .
Anurag Thakur, head of the BJP DDC polls, said the election results are an appropriate response to Mehbooba Mufti, who had refused to deploy the Tricolor. “Independent candidates have obtained more votes than Congress and the PPD. The same Mehbooba Mufti who refused to deploy the Tricolor has received an adequate response today, ”said Anurag Thakur.
Mehbooba Mufti’s tricolor comment fueled a lot of controversy, as he had said that he will raise the tricolor only when the Jammu and Kashmir state flag is allowed.
This was the first survey conducted in Jammu and Kashmir after it became a Union Territory. To contest this election, the local parties from Jammu and Kashmir came together and formed the Gupkar Alliance, which is close to the majority mark. The alliance has won 110 seats, but the BJP has become the largest party with 75 seats and the maximum share of votes in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The trust that the people of J&K have placed in Modiji, the support they have shown for their policies and their work to strengthen democratic principles, are the reasons why BJP has 3 seats in the Kashmir Valley,” said Anurag Thakur . .
This is where the parts are from now on:
Results from four constituencies are still awaited, one in Bandipora and Kupwara districts of northern Kashmir and Poonch and Rajouri districts in the Jammu region.
Of the 276 seats whose results have been declared so far, independent candidates have won 49, ahead of Congress (26) and Mehbooba Mufti’s PDP (27). But PDP is part of the winning alliance.
Omar Abdullah, on the other hand, questioned how the BJP could be the largest party as long as the National Conference did not compete with many seats due to the alliance. Countering the BJP’s claim of “victory for democracy”, Omar Abdullah said that if the BJP had believed in democracy, they would have already announced elections for the Assembly. “With this defeat, I don’t think the BJP government will hold elections for the Assembly here anytime soon. The polls would have already been announced if they had believed in democracy. So we have time to strengthen our party, ”he said.
“We must also accept that there are some weaknesses in our organization in some areas. We hoped to win the elections in some seats, but we couldn’t, ”he added.
