Srinagar, Feb 13: As chairpersons and vice-chairpersons for at least five districts in Jammu and Kashmir are being elected today, the polls in Ramban may throw a surprise amid reported confusion between National Conference and Congress.
Sources said that Azaad Itihaad Group (AIG) which is reportedly backed by J&K Apni Party may spring a surprise even as independents are keen to have non-BJP candidate elected for the vice-chairperson post. Equally, they said, the PAGD (NC) and Congress are confident to win the DDC chairperson and vice-chairperson elections.
The polls are being held in Rajouri, Kishtwar and Poonch besides Ramban in Jammu division and Bandipora in Kashmir Valley.
