Early trends within the counting of votes for the District Development Council (DDC) elections in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday show PAGD, an anti-BJP alliance formed post abrogation of article 370, within the lead followed by the BJP.

The People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) — an alliance of seven political parties including the National Conference and therefore the People’s Democratic Party — was leading in 10 of the 25 DDC seats that trends were available.

The BJP was leading in six seats followed by the Apni Party (three) and Congress (Two).

There are 280 DDC seats that voting was held over eight phases within the Jammu and Kashmir, the primary mass election after the abrogation of article 370 last year. PTI
