As the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections-2024 began in Srinagar on May 13, three generations of the Abdullah family led by National Conference stalwart Dr Farooq Abdullah voted on Monday.

 

Dr Abdullah’s son, Omar Abdullah, and grandsons  Zahir Abdullah and Zamir Abdullah, cast their votes at a polling station set up at Burnhall School in Srinagar's Sonawar neighbourhood.

 

Speaking to reporters later, Dr Farooq Abdullah said, "It is sad that they say there is no violence and everything is smooth, but the workers of our party have been locked up for two days." 

 

He said he would “want to ask the Union Home Minister and Prime Minister Modi why our workers have been detained. Are they terrified of losing? They will lose." 

 

NC Vice President and former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah said people could only raise their voice by voting.

 

He encouraged young people and first-time voters to cast their ballot and utilise their political rights so that their opinions might be heard.

 

Polling is underway in the Srinagar Parliamentary Constituency amid tight security. This is the first election in the Union Territory since Article 370 was repealed.

 

Meanwhile, the polling figures in the Srinagar LS constituency revealed that around 5.07 per cent of votes had been recorded until 9  am. Voting began at 7 am and will continue until 6 pm.

 

Officials said polling stations were witnessing a gradual increase of voters in all segments of the Srinagar Parliamentary Constituency.

 

Giving segment-wise details, the officials said that Central Shalteng recorded 3.16 per cent, Chadoora 9.62 per cent, Char-e-Shareef 8.30 per cent, Chanapora 2.77 per cent, Eidgah 4.70 per cent, Ganderbal 8.83 per cent, Habba Kadal 2.10 per cent, Hazratbal 3.55 per cent, Kangan (ST) 7.89 per cent, Khan Sahib 6.70 per cent, Khanyar 0.00 per cent, Lal Chowk 3.23 per cent, Pampore 4.61 per cent, Pulwama 5.14 per cent, Rajpora 5.87 per cent, Shopian 7.03 per cent, Tral 3.70 per cent, and Zadibal 3.25 per cent.
