Elections are the make or break time for any political party. They not only decide the fate of the contesting candidate, but also influence the future course of the party itself. They are an emphatic way by which people show their dissent and approval. A lot of speculations have been made about the Anantnag Assembly polls. While the usual cries of boycotting the elections have reverberated across the valley, the excitement among the people has been hard to miss. People are going to be keenly following the elections, as everyone is interested in knowing which party will emerge victorious. Will the Muftis continue their long reign over the South or will their unpopular alliance with BJP bring an end to their domination? Team KO asks a few locals. Here is what they feel.
