Polling is underway in two district development council (DDC) constituencies of Jammu and Kashmir where a re-poll was ordered by the election authorities due to disputed qualification of candidates, officials said on Monday.

The polling for the DDC seats of Hajin-A in Bandipora and Drugmulla in Kupwara started on Monday morning.

The state election commissioner has appealed to voters to cast their votes without any fear and strengthen the democratic process by participating in large numbers.

A mock poll was conducted at all polling stations before the actual start to ensure free and transparent polling.

The DDC elections took place in Jammu and Kashmir in December 2020. However, the counting of votes was withheld in these two seats due to the disputed qualification of two candidates.

Later, the state election commission declared the polling to these constituencies as void, cancelling the candidature of Soomia Sadaf and Shazia Aslam, citing wrong information about the place of birth by the Pakistan occupied Kashmir-origin candidates.
