It is a very crucial for all political parties in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is facing a testing time this time to maintain law and order in the state. The anti-incumbency factor may hit the chances of the his father and Union Minister, Farooq Abdullah in this constituency. J&K has given the family to serve the state for three generations, Grandfather Syed Abdullah, his son Farooq and grandson Omar as Chief Ministers. But, people are of the opinion that development couldn't take place on expected lines. Congress is supporting Farooq Abdullah. In turn, NC would support Gulam Nabhi Azad at Udhampur constituency. The people's Democratic Party has fielded its former Minister Tariq, who is really a threat to the National Conference party. Social activist Dr.Raja Bhat is contesting as AAP candidate and another challenger to NC. Though BJP has nominated its candidate, reports of his quitting the party are coming in. Thus BJP may not pose any challenge here.
The constituency is going for polls on 30th April 2014 and counting would be undertaken on 16th May 2014.
