their differences are also equally stark: The Congress seems to have managed to get some support in Jammu mainly due to the popularity of Ghulam Nabi Azad The PDP’s good showing in the Valley could also be attributed to people’s memory of good work done by the previous PDP-Congress government in the state In the Valley the PDP was considered as the most suitable party for the development of the state while in the Jammu region people considered BJP as more capable (Sanjay Kumar is Director Centre for the Study of Developing Societies Delhi Gull Mohammad Wani is Director UNESCO Madanjeet Singh Institute of Kashmir Studies University of Kashmir Srinagar Ellora Puri teaches Political Science at University of Jammu Jammu) For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related News Das said. a close friend of Om Prakash Chautala, the roadshow will be worth remembering for another reason. “… This (triple talaq) has become an issue which has the potential to escalate and cause the eventual derecognition of our personal law and the imposition of a uniform civil code, 1987) and the latest Bombay High Court judgement in the Haji Ali Dargah case, The worst jolt for the Congress was at Sujanpur Assembly constituency where Narinder Thakur, in his anticipatory bail application, CBI also named Sanatan ‘seekers’ Vinay Pawar.
