Early Times Report

BANDIPORA, Dec 1: Majority of the rural masses have been disenchanted by previous regimes and thus time they came out in large numbers to vote for their desired candidates and they hope to see the new dawn of developmental works in their areas.
Despite harsh cold and amid tight security arrangements, people in large numbers were seen at different polling booths across north Kashmir for the second phase of DDC elections.
As per figures, percentage of total votes polled today in Kashmir division was 33.34% out of which 28.95 % was recorded in Baramulla, 69.66 % in Bandipora and 58.69% polling was recorded in Kupwara for the second phase of DDC elections.

The highest poll percentage was recorded in Bandipora district of north Kashmir, where both male and female used their franchise to elect their representatives for the second phase of District Development Council (DDC) elections 2020.
"Let us forget about Article 370 and 35 A, but what we are looking for is Sadak, Bijli and Pani (road, electricity and water) that is why we came here to vote", said one of the voters from Bandipora constituency.
He said that many times in the past, we were promised by the former politicians that there will be an uninterrupted power supply, motorable roads, and safe drinking water but nothing has been done practically till date.
"This time we are not asking them for something big, but we just need bijli, sadak and pani, that are very important for us. According to them the residents in this area rue that for the past so many years their villages have been neglected by the people in power", said voters.
Another voter from Kupwara district said that there is an acute shortage of potable water in our village. Women have to walk several kilometres to fetch water from streams and the roads here are in dilapidated condition as they haven't been mended for the past so many years and they hope in the next years their problems will be solved at the earliest.
"Unemployment is a major issue, let the new DDCs think of it and they can help the local poor masses in opening of some business units, development should be their priority, otherwise there will be no difference between previous politicians and the new ones", said voters from Dangerpora Sopore of Sopore constituency.
