LS Polls: Peace, development results into bumper voting: Raina


Peace, prosperity, and large-scale development in Jammu and Kashmir under Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Union government has resulted in bumper voting in Lok Sabha elections, said Ravinder Raina, President, J&K BJP here on Sunday.

Flanked by Kavinder Gupta, former Deputyy Chief Minister, and Dr. Devinder Kumar Manyal, General Secretary, J&K BJP, Raina addressing a presser here said the massive participation of people in the electoral process has resulted in record-breaking voting in Jammu and Kashmir.

Raina thanked the voters for the bumper voting and said that in the Jammu-Reasi Parliamentary seat, more than 72 percent of votes were polled. Udhampur-Doda seat witnessed more than 68 percent voting.

In Srinagar Parliamentary seat 40 percent voting was witnessed. Baramulla Parliamentary seat witnessed near about 60 percent voting. Anantnag-Rajouri Poonch Parliamentary seat also witnessed bumper voting.

BJP congratulates and appreciates the people of J&K for their enthusiastic participation, said Raina, and thanked the Election Commission, government officials, Army, Paramilitary Forces, JKP, and all others for their role in ensuring a peaceful election in the whole region.

Ravinder Raina appreciated every voter in Jammu and Kashmir for their role in achieving 58 percent total polling, a record polling that has shattered the previous voting records in the region. He also specially mentioned the first-time voters for their overwhelming participation in the electoral process.

“The bumper voting by enthusiastic people is the proof of new Jammu and Kashmir which is treading on the path of peace, prosperity, brotherhood, and development under the leadership of Modi whose government was able to create a sense of security in the hearts and minds of the local population,” said Raina.

Raina also recalled that more than 50 percent voting is witnessed in the areas that earlier used to witness the meager voting of 2 percent or 4 percent.

Raina expressed hope that this trend for bumper participation and voting will also be witnessed in the Assembly elections and other local elections.

“People have celebrated the elections as a festival. A free and fair electoral process in a peaceful atmosphere where every political party was able to campaign freely is a trend in new Jammu and Kashmir. This testifies the improved security and development under Prime Minister Narendra Modi”, said Raina.
