Earlier, Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police, RR Swain reviewed the security preparedness for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in a joint officers meeting held at south Kashmir’s Anantnag District on Sunday.
The meeting was aimed at assessing the readiness of the forces deployed for the elections, facilitating a collaborative effort towards ensuring the safe and successful conduct of the upcoming polls.
During the meeting, the DGP held detailed discussions with senior officers of the J&K Police, CRPF, Army, ITBP, BSF, SSB and intelligence agencies. The meeting focused on the security arrangements put in place for the smooth conduct of the elections.
DGP sought inputs from the officers on various projects planned to ensure safe and secure elections.
Polling in Udhampur was held on April 19 (Phase 1), while Jammu, Anantnag-Rajouri, Srinagar, and Baramulla will poll on April 26, May 7, May 13, and May 20 respectively.
In 2019, polling for the Lok Sabha was held for six seats in Jammu and Kashmir. However, following the abrogation of Article 370, which resulted in the split of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state into two Union Territories–Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, there is no longer a separate Lok Sabha constituency for Ladakh.
In the 2019 elections, the BJP won three seats while the National Conference won the remaining three.
The counting of votes will be held on June 4
