Dismiss J&K Govt, demands Abdullah after LS bypoll win

National Conference president Farooq Abdullah, who is the joint candidate of Congress-NC, beat People's Democratic Party's Nazir Ahmed Khan to win the Srinagar Parliamentary bypoll.

Although there were seven other candidates in the fray, it was NOTA ('none of the above' option) that bagged the second runner-up spot with over 930 voters choosing this option.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Tuesday announced re-polling on 38 polling stations on April 13.

Voting in the by-election was held on April 9.

The National Conference leader got 45,582 votes, which account for less than 4 per cent of Srinagar's 12.5 lakh registered voters.

Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney dies at 84
After some sad news, the Minnesota Vikings offered some kind words about the career of Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney. Daniel Milton Rooney was born in Pittsburgh on July 20, 1932, a year before the Steelers entered the still-fledgling NFL.

While he was elected to the Lower House unopposed from Srinagar in the 1980 general election, in 2009, he defeated PDP candidate, the late Molvi Iftikhar Ansari, by a margin of almost 32,000 votes.

Of the 89,865 votes polled, 56,119 votes have been counted, election officials said. "Governor's rule to be imposed & elections to be conducted under Guv's rule", he demanded.

At least seven civilians were killed during clashes with the security forces in various areas of central Kashmir's Budgam district on April 9. Mr Abdullah, 79, had in 2014 lost to PDP leader Tariq Hameed Karra.

Abdullah, after winning the election said he would not resign from the parliamentary seat since he "believes in democracy", putting to rest speculations of his resignation due to low low voter turnout. Results show that people are in favour of NC. The situation in Kashmir, he said, was at its worst.

I request them not to do such things which will add to the fire and render it uncontrollable, he said. "Many wars were fought in the past but nothing came out of them", he said.
