Early Times Report

Jammu, July 9: Congress high command is seriously thinking about fielding young faces in the coming Assembly elections to take on BJP in Jammu province. Highly placed sources in the party said that like the BJP, the Congress high command has also hired a private agency to survey before fielding candidates for the Assembly elections in J&K.
Sources said that the high command has decided to conduct this survey to get feedback about the credentials and credibility of some elderly leaders who became a stumbling block in the growth of young and honest leaders in Jammu province.
Sources further said that Congress’s high command will also go through the record of just concluded Lok Sabha elections to finalize tickets to the senior leaders.
As per the initial report prepared by the private survey agencies, Congress has lost repeated elections in Jammu, Samba, Kathua, Reasi, and Udhampur districts due to the style of functioning of the senior leaders who always discouraged the young leadership.
“Despite losing repeated elections, some senior leaders are still staking their claims on different Assembly segments”, sources said and added that the decision to give mandates to these leaders would be

aken only after the report of the survey agency.
As reported earlier, the failure of the senior Congress leaders to perform in their respective constituencies proved costly for the party in the just concluded Lok Sabha election on the Jammu-Reasi Lok Sabha seat.
While second-rung leaders worked with dedication and commitment to increase the party’s vote on the Jammu-Reasi Lok Sabha seat, senior leaders failed to enhance the party’s vote in their constituencies.
Congress received setbacks in Chhamb, Akhnoor, and Jammu North where the party was expecting to control BJP to take a huge lead. While party workers effectively checked BJP in Bishnah, Samba, Ramgarh, and Vijaypur assembly segments, the party failed to control BJP in Chhamb, Akhnoor, and Jammu North where many stalwarts of the party are staking their claims.
From the Chhamb Assembly segment, BJP candidate Jugal Kishore Sharma secured 46662 votes while Congress’s Raman Bhalla got 29550 votes. Important to mention here that the Chhamb assembly segment was represented by a senior Congress leader.
On the Jammu North Assembly segment, where over half a dozen senior Congress leaders are staking their claims, the lead of the BJP is maximum on this segment.
