65% vote in J&K 2nd phase poll

The Jammu and Kashmir people once again defied the separatist boycott call and ignored inclement weather to vote in large numbers in the second phase of polls on Sunday.

Around 65% of the nearly 5 lakhs electorate voted to decide the fate of 81 candidates, including National Conference leader Omar Abdullah. The first round of voting last week saw a turnout of 67%.

The polling in 6 constituencies, Kangan, Ganderbal in the Kashmir Valley and Nowshera, Darhal, Rajouri, Kalakot in the Jammu region, was by and large peaceful.
