Jammu and Kashmir Elections 2014 Possible Scenarios

The on-going election for the Jammu and KashmirAssembly are being held in five phases from 25 November to 20 December 2014. The conduct of the elections, thelevel of participation and the possible scenarios are matters of speculation.

The high voter turnout in the initials phases has surprised many giving rise to various interpretations on the mood of the people of the state. But one thing perhapsstands out – the people are participating in large numbers to write a new script in the state’s political history and the trends show they are enthusiastically voting for “change”. Reports from the valley indicate that the voters are more concerned with issues of day-to-day governance rather than the larger questions of autonomy and the peace process.

In other words, the reasons for greater voter participation in Kashmir may not all be as affirmative as they are being made out to be. Having said that, however, a high turnout suggests a people addressing the state—with hope or in anger. The elections are also being held in the background of the boycott call given by separatists and renewed tensions between India and Pakistan and the apparent hardline that the Modi government has adopted.

All of these and related factors are discussed in the new Special Study by Asia NewsAgency which will help understand the dynamics of politics and social change in the troubled state. The study traces the history of elections since independence, the significance of the present elections, the dominant issues, the possible likely and unlikely scenarios. It would also help to understand how the different regions in the state namely, Kashmir, Ladakh and Jammu perceive the two major national parties Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress, and the regional parties – National Conference and The People’s Democratic Party.

This 8,500 word Special Study is available for a price of INR. 2,500 in print and electronic version. With each order, Asia News Agency offers the earlier study on “Pakistan in danger of Balkanization: impact on bilateral relations with India” at a 50% discounted price of INR.1500 in print and electronic version.
