Despite the pressure tactics, PAGD registered a thumping win in DDC election in JKPost abrogation of article 370 and 35A, this was the first election in jk which was concluded a few days back and results were declared yesterday. Despite pressure tactics, stopping leaders from campaigning, detentions and imposing the restriction on candidates, PAGD emerged as the biggest winner with 110 seats in theses DDC elections in JK. Even some leaders who were declared winners are still in custody.
Other than BJP, candidates were not even provided security and we're prevented from the campaigning for these elections. Still, PAGD got the majority seats in JK without any campaign. However, the BJP campaigned throughout JK with 8 union ministers, visited everywhere, enjoyed shikara ride while they campaigned but could win only 3 blocks in Kashmir.
Democracy is not only about fighting elections, it is also giving equal rights to every citizen in every aspect. Repressive tactics and raids just to silence the dissent is the murder of democracy even if the elections are held without providing equal space to everyone. Despite a shrinking space PAGD registered a thumping win with 110 seats in JK.
