Early Times Report

Jammu, May 26: The recently concluded Lok Sabha polls are an indication that Congress in Jammu and Peoples Democratic Party in Kashmir are on a sticky wicket and the forthcoming Assembly elections can spell the doom for both the parties.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that the BJP winning both the Lok Sabha seats in Jammu and another in Ladakh has boosted the morale of the party leaders but they are ignoring an important factor i.e. in the recent Parliamentary polls no one voted for a particular candidate. "People across the country voted for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in most of the places people even didn't know the name of the BJP candidate," he added.
The analyst said that forthcoming Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir would be held to elect a local government and the names of the candidates would matter. "The Assembly segment wise results show that Bharatiya Janata Party and National Conference are on top and had the Assembly election taken place along with the Parlaimentray polls both Congress and PDP would have faced embarrassment and their seats would not have crossed the single digit mark," he added.
An observer said that Lok Sabha elections are different from the Assembly elections and we should not assume that results would be on the similar lines. "When people cast their votes in Assembly elections they asses the performance of their sitting MLA and do keep their options open. Everyone is aware about the fact that PDP-BJP coalition during its three and half year tenure couldn't do much on the governance front and people were unhappy by the performance of the BJP and PDP ministers," the observer added.
He said that there is no doubt about the fact that BJP has increased its vote share in Jammu and Ladakh regions but picture would change drastically in the forthcoming Assembly elections. "National Conference and BJP cannot become complacent there is every possibility about small parties and independent candidates turning the tables on the traditional parties. Congress and PDP are in trouble but the new parties and the new candidates, who are emerging on the scene, are in no way on the weak wicket as they have nothing to lose. BJP and NC sweeping Jammu, Ladakh and Kashmir regions respectively have put more pressure on these parties. If their candidates don't perform in the Assembly polls it would be proven beyond doubt that winning Parliamentary elections was just a coincidence and nothing more. BJP leaders cannot ride on Modi wave to win the Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir," the observer added.
