Place: Ohangam village in Beerwah

Constituency: Baramulla

Why were you reluctant to vote? There are a lot of people here who don’t vote. It did not enthuse me

What has forced the change? Engineer Sahab’s (Engineer Rashid) entry has galvanised the campaign. I too will vote for the first time, and for him

Why so? Because he represents the sentiment. Maybe my vote will gain him freedom. He was one man who would speak about Kashmir in the Assembly. That is why he was jailed

Do other issues like unemployment, price rise or development hold no importance to you?
Yes, they are also important. There are no jobs for the educated people in Kashmir. Unemployment is rising. Maybe our vote will bring some change on these fronts as well

Baramulla votes on May 20
