In a significant political development, the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council- Kargil elections witnessed a sweeping victory by the National Conference (NC) and Congress, collectively securing 22 out of the total 26 seats.

This electoral triumph marks a substantial political shift in the region.

According to the latest results the National Conference secured an impressive 12 seats, showcasing its strong electoral presence in the region.

Meanwhile, its ally, the Congress party, also put up an impressive performance by emerging victorious in 10 seats.

In contrast, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and independent candidates managed to secure two seats each, making up the remaining seats in the council. This distribution of seats reflects a multi-faceted political landscape in Kargil.

It’s worth noting that this election holds particular significance as it is the first electoral exercise in Kargil since August 5, 2019.
