This 30 minute special will throw light on India’s most troubled state facing major issues such as militancy, cross border terrorism and a deeply vitiated socio-political environment.
The political scenario in the state has also redefined with all the 4 major political parties contesting on their own. On the one hand, the ruling Omar Abdullah government is facing the issue of anti-incumbency and seems to have a challenging battle ahead. The BJP which has been traditionally hawkish on Kashmir, is looking to build on its nation-wide momentum and win the state for the very first time. The PDP and the Congress will also try to turn in a strong performance in these elections.
All these nuances and dynamics undoubtedly make the J&K Election among the most intriguing elections to understand and cover in India.
