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.

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.
