Sub: Weather conditions are not allowing election campaign in J&K  


Sir,
You must have noticed that entire J&K is under the spell of cold wave, rain and thunder. All routes and roads in Udhampur Parliamentary Constituency have been blocked and the election campaign has been abandoned by all political parties and contesting candidates.
1.    The entire communication work has collapsed in Kathua District and the road to three Assembly constituencies have been blocked due to rain mainly Billawar, Basohli and Bani.
2.    The highway from Kathua to Udhampur leading to Ramban and Banihal has been closed due to bad weather, glaciers and heavy land slides.
3.    That there is no connectivity between Udhampur and Banihal, between Banihal and Ramban, between Batote and Doda. No political party or candidate can play miracle in such a weather to campaign.
4.    That almost one week has gone since the announcement of the election schedule on 5th March and the election campaign could not be launched due to worsening weather condition.
5.    It shall be in the interest of free and fair polls that the election schedule for Udhampur parliamentary constituency is readjusted. This constituency may be brought on election schedule along with Ladakh and Baramullah on May 7, 2014.
Thanking you,
