Early Times Report

JAMMU, Apr 17: About five thousand migrant voters will cast their votes in Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency which is going to polls in the second phase on Thursday.
The polling will be held on all 26 special polling booths at Jammu Udhampur and Delhi. Out of 26 special polling booths 21 are in Jammu while one is in Udhampur and four in Delhi.
The highest number of M Forms in Srinagar constituency were received by ARO Migrants Jammu where 4500 migrants have applied for casting their vote in Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency. Only 75 migrant voters have opted to cast vote on one special polling booth at Udhampur and rest in Delhi.
Official sources said polling will be held on all 21 polling booths in Jammu, one booth at Udhampur and four in Delhi.
Sources said highest number of 900 voters each have applied for two polling booths in Jagti while lowest number of two migrant voters have applied for one polling booth in Miran Sahib R S Pura.
It may be recalled that about 2100 migrants from Baramulla Constituency have applied to cast their vote in first phase on April 11 out of 5000 migrant voters who had opted to cast their vote on different polling booths in Jammu, Udhampur and Delhi.
The main reason for migrants not showing interest in casting the vote is the government's failure to do away with cumbersome process of filling up M Forms getting them authenticated and signing of Form 12 C.
The migrants right from last two decades have been demanding simplifying of the procedure but Government never bothered to take cognisance of the same.
This time BJP leadership though had promised that procedure will be simplified to ensure migrants participation enmass too failed to motivate Election Commission of India (ECI).
It may be recalled there were about 22,000 migrant votes in Baramulla Constituency while the number of migrant votes in Srinagar Constituency is about 39,000.
There is a straight contest between NC's Dr Farooq Abdullah with BJP' Khalid Jahangir and PDP's Mohsin Ali. The PDP candidate is Agha Mohsin while Peoples conference candidate is Irfan Raza Ansari.
