12

The Gupkar Alliance, a grouping of six parties, increased its tally to 110 seats out of a total of 280 seats in Jammu and Kashmir’s District Development Council (DDC) polls.
The BJP bagged 75 seats, according to the results announced for 277 seats so far.
The BJP has emerged as the single largest party with 75 seats, followed by National Conference (67), People’s Democratic Party (27), and Congress (26). 
The maiden DDC polls were conducted in 280 seats, with each district divided into 14 constituencies. A significant number of independents (49) also managed to register their wins.
 In many of the districts, the independents are likely to play a key role in determining who becomes the district chairperson. 
J&K has 20 districts and it remains to be seen which party secures the maximum number of chairperson posts.

According to the trends, the Gupkar alliance and the Congress are likely to have their chairmen in around 13 districts, while the BJP is confident of winning five to six.
“It’s amusing to see the desperation of the BJP propaganda. Yesterday it was about three seats in the Valley and today it’s about being the single largest party. 
They aren’t even embarrassed about making comparisons with the National Conference, which contested far fewer seats due to an alliance,” National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah tweeted.
