Lol turn out in Srinagar
Srinagar unprecedented security measures were put in place by the authorities to combat any violence as there was very low polling for the repoll of thirty two polling boths for Srinagar parliamentary segment.there were more than three hundred crpf men for guarding a single booth.
Earlier the police had arrested hundreds of suspects who could have disrupted the polling.People have proved all the mainstream politicians wrong who earlier said that low percentage of polling was because of low security around the polling booths as their voters were not feeling safe.Even huge security cover with area domination could not bring the voters out to vote at most of the polling booths in Srinagar parliamentary segment.According to the latest reports by afternoon there was only one percent of the votes cast.
Very low turnout has brought question mark on the very narrative of the mainstream politics of Kashmir.Election commission of India will take the final call about the health of the voter percentage in srinagar parliamentary segment. Separatists have already said that it was their victory and the near total boycott has brought curtains down on the entire election exercise in Kashmir.
