Early Times Report

Kishtwar, Apr 17: Kishtwar district is going to polls on Thursday under a security cover in the aftermath of killing of the Parihar brothers and RSS leader Chanderkant Sharma by militants.
As per the details available with "Early Times", as many as 376 polling parties have been dispatched for polling in two Assembly segments of district Kishtwar (51-Kishtwar and 52-Inderwal) which is going to polls under the supervision of ARO- 51 Kishtwar ADC Kishtwar Pawan Parihar, ARO -52 Inderwal ACR Kishtwar Dr. Amir Hussain, CPO Kishtwar Mohammad, CAO Kishtwar, ARTO Kishtwar, Nodal Officer SVEEP & Training, Dy. DEO Kishtwar, BDO Inderwal Parveen Kumar, Nodal Officer, EVM/VVPATs, ENT Kishtwar besides concerned district Officers/Officials monitored the proceedings.
Among 376 polling parties, 177 polling parties were dispatched for AC-51 Kishtwar and 199 for AC-52 Inderwal of district Kishtwar for polling and in far flung areas like Marwah and Warwan polling parties were dispatched through helicopter well in advance. In addition to this, 26 engineers of ECIL were also dispatched at different locations for smooth conduct of parliamentary elections 2019.
Polling staff was instructed to perform their election duty with responsibility and high spirit for ensuring free and fair election in the district.
Earlier on Wednesday morning, the polling parties reported at the respective dispatch centre where Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) along with Voters Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) and other election material were made available to them.
Later, accompanied by Security personnel, the presiding Officers and other team members, the polling staff left for their respective polling station to undertake the voting process, to be held on April 18 from 7 am till 6 pm.
It is pertinent to mention here that in Kishtwar district, with two Assembly segments of Kishtwar and Inderwal has 181,751 electors including 93,695 males, 88,055 females, and a single transgender voter and the authorities have set up 376 polling stations across the district out of which one polling station has been identified as Women polling station at Islamia Faridia HSS Kishtwar.
Many employees however slammed the District Election Officer for his failure in providing service ballot to them so that they could cast the vote at respective polling stations.
"After tense situation in Kishtwar following killing of RSS leader and his PSO, we have been told that the election authorities will provide us service ballot, but same was not providing them by DEO Kishtwar" said some employees engaged in poll duties added that they are being denied the voting right.
Meanwhile there is continuous resentment against the district administration and police among the people demanding transfer of DC Kishtwar Angrez Singh Rana and senior police officials, besides also against the BJP and its leaders for their failure in safeguarding the lives of the minority community in the district.
Keeping in view of the polling day, the members of civil society have called off their protest against the administration for Thursday and are likely to restore the peaceful protest against the administration and police failure a day after polling day.
