Despite strong security grid violence may rock Kashmir Panchayat poll
8/30/2018 10:55:13 PM
Mainstream Political
Parties and separatists
besides militants are expected to face a challenge during the Panchayat and ULB elections. Wile the separatists and militants may ensure that the elections are not fully participated by the people, the mainstream political parties wish to see voters line up in front of the polling booths. And if the separatists and militants may be able to disrupt the polling in the Kashmir valley there may be an orderly polling in he region of Jammu. That is the reason for the Union Home Ministry to retain over 200 companies of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) companies are being deployed in the 10 districts of the Valley to infuse confidence among people in the run-up to the panchayat elections. The Union Home Ministry has retained 203 CAPF companies (over 15,000 personnel) deployed by the Ministry of Home Affairs for the two-month Amarnath yatra which concluded on Sunday. The 15,000 personnel are now being deployed in all districts of the Valley for the pre-election duties.
According to the police, major part of the CAPF companies are being deployed in central Kashmir. And 19 companies have deployed in the volatile South Kashmir. Since major part of the companies have been kept at the disposal of the police the police authorities could order redeployment of police personnel in areas which is prone to violence. This way many companies of the CAPF would be mobile to deal with any situation. And the separatists are bent upon kicking up poor percentage of polling which, according to separatists, may mean that majority of people have lost in the Indian system of electoral process.
Well in the 2014 Lok Sabha and the Assembly elections separatists were unable to campaign for poor polling with the result that both these elections registered heavy polling which was treated as a slap on the face of separatists. This time the separatists and militants want to avenge their defeat in the 2014 polls both the separatists and militants have plans of disrupting polling. The police and intelligence agencies have reports that militants may explode bombs to ensure that the crowds go back to their home without casting their votes. And if the separatists and militants achieve success in experiencing poor polling percentage they may again rake up the Kashmir issue. Thus violence only may help separatists and militants to ensure poor polling percentage.
