Panthers Party demands re-polling in Doda
The Panthers Party has demanded re-polling in the entire Doda district of Udhampur LS seat alleging that the authorities did not provide adequate security arrangements.
Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party has demanded re-polling in the entire Doda district of Udhampur parliamentary constituency alleging that the authorities did not provide adequate security arrangements.
"It was due to inadequate security that incidents of violence took place in the sprawling hilly district forcing the voters not to participate in large numbers in the electoral process yesterday," the chairman of JKNPP Bhim Singh, who is also in the fray among 20 candidates in Udhampur Lok Sabha constituency, said on Tuesday.
He said a number of blasts and firing incidents during the past few days created a sense of fear among the electorates in the district and consequently polling was less in different assembly segments of this district as compared to two other districts of this constituency.
Singh said he has appealed to the Election Commission to order re-polling in the district. "I have also said a detailed communication to ECI in this regard", he added.
The JKNPP chief said his party activists had also brought the matter to the notice of election observer of the constituency, and apprised him about violations by other party candidates.
