Cong, NC Vote Share Increases, BJP’s Decline

Srinagar, June 11 (KINS): The Congress and National Conference (NC) have seen an increase in their vote share, while the BJP’s vote share has dipped in the recently concluded Parliamentary polls in Jammu and Kashmir.

The NC and Congress, part of the INDIA bloc, received 41.6% of the total votes polled in the Lok Sabha elections. In contrast, the BJP, Apni Party, and People’s Conference (PC), which opposed the INDIA bloc, managed to secure 31.7% of the vote share.

At least 51.59 lakh people cast their votes in these elections. Of these, NC and Congress candidates secured 21.45 lakh votes, while BJP, Apni Party, and PC together tallied 16.4 lakh votes. Despite winning two seats in the Jammu region, the BJP’s vote share has decreased.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP secured two seats in Jammu with a 32.6% vote share. In the 2019 Parliamentary elections, voter turnout in Jammu and Kashmir was 49.3%, and the BJP retained its two seats in Jammu and one in Ladakh, with its vote share increasing to 46.7%.

In the recent polls, the BJP did not field candidates in three Lok Sabha constituencies. Both Apni Party and DPAP performed poorly, with their candidates forfeiting their security deposits. The Congress did not win any seats, but its vote share has increased from 28.6% in 2019. The NC, which won all three seats in the 2019 parliamentary polls, had a vote share of 7.9%. The combined vote share of NC and Congress in the recent polls increased to 41.6%. (KINS)
