SRINAGAR: BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh today said that J&K had ‘blossomed as a democracy’ by registering record turnout of voters.

Chugh said the days of boycott and bullets spearheaded by Abdullahs, Muftis and Gandhis are over in the valley.

“People are enthused to exercise their franchise. It’s all because PM Modi has ushered in a new era in J&K where militancy and guns are gone,” he said.

Chugh said it is ‘a victory of the Modi era’ that the Kashmir valley had witnessed unprecedented turnout of voters.

He said ‘whichever way the verdict goes but it’s a proud moment for the nation which salutes the prime minister Modi for making it happen’. 

Meanwhile, the Baramulla Parliamentary constituency recorded approximately 59 percent voter turnout on Monday, marking the highest polling percentage in the democratic history of the constituency. This milestone was achieved without any reports of violence throughout the polling day.

The constituency had 2,103 polling stations, all monitored by CCTV surveillance to ensure smooth conduct. Despite some complaints of slow polling, investigations revealed that the polling staff were working diligently and effectively. There were no untoward incidents reported anywhere, and zero violence was witnessed.

The Handwara assembly segment recorded the highest polling percentage at 67.5 percent, while the Gurez assembly segment saw the lowest turnout.
