Omar Abdullah likely to contest Lok Sabha polls from North Kashmir

Srinagar Mar 29 (KINS): Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah is likely to contest the Lok Sabha polls from North Kashmir’s Baramulla.

National Conference district committee has sent a panel of three names to the party high command for shortlisting of candidates for the Lok Sabha seat and Omar’s name figures on top. The others on the list include former NC ministers.
Party sources said most leaders want Omar to contest from Baramulla, with a senior leader who is also part of the district committee, saying, “We have requested party high command that Omar Abdullah should contest from Baramulla and most likely he will be the party’s candidate.”

With 11.47 lakh voters, Baramulla seat is spread over 16 assembly segments of four districts Baramulla, Kupwara, Bandipora and Budgam.
