Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 25: Top leaders of the NC in Kashmir valley may have been celebrating the victory of all three party candidates in Lok Sabha polls but a closer look at the voting share accumulated by the party candidates clearly reveal a different picture. Between 2014 and 2019, the total vote share of the party has gone down from 19.11 per cent to merely 7.88 per cent.
It is ironical that despite getting 19.11 per cent votes in 2014, the NC had failed to win even a single seat, but this time it won all the three Lok Sabha seats in Kashmir valley - Srinagar, Baramulla and Anantnag.
In case of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti has to deal with much more precarious situation ahead of the Assembly polls in the state. Her party's' vote share witnessed a sharp decline of 18 per cent. In 2014, the PDP had got a total vote share of 20.5 per cent while on May 23, the PDP failed to open its account in Kashmir valley. Its vote share dropped to 2.39 per cent. In 2009, PDP had secured a vote share of 22.36 per cent.
In contrast, the vote share of both the national political parties, the BJP and the Congress, has risen in the state in comparison to 2014 Lok Sabha polls. The Congress party, which failed to open its account for the second time in a row, got more votes this time as compared to 2014. Its vote share increased from 22.9 per cent in 2014 to 28.66 per cent in 2019. In 2009, the Congress had got 24.67 per cent of the votes in the state.
The giant killer is the BJP. It not only managed to retain all three Lok Sabha seats (Jammu-Poonch, Kathua-Udhampur-Doda and Ladakh) it had won in 2014, but also improved its vote tally from 32.4 per cent in 2014 to 46.2 per cent in 2019. In the 2009 Lok Sabha poll, the BJP's had secured 18.61 per cent.
