Immediately after winning bypolls to Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency, National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah urged the Centre and the President to dismiss the PDP-led government and impose Governor's rule in the state. The former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister urged the central government to impose Governor's rule in the state, terming the election as the "bloodiest ever".
The Srinagar Lok Sabha seat fell vacant after the sitting MP Tariq Hameed Karra resigned after differences with the party over its alliance with the BJP, and the failure of the state government to contain violence and the killings during the 2016 unrest.
Out of the almost 80,000 votes cast, about 50,000 have been counted so far, an official said.

One of their most successful singles was the song " Centerfold " from the album " Freeze Frame ", which was released in 1981. The 71-year-old was found unresponsive and he was declared dead at the scene.
Of the 52132 votes counted till noon, 542 had opted for NOTA option while other five candidates had secured votes in two digit or three digit figures. Re-polling was held on April 13 for 38 polling stations in Budgam district, that saw a mere 2 per cent balloting.
Abdullah, whose victory is being considered a setback to the ruling PDP, demanded that the by-election to the Anantnag Parliamentary constituency, which has been postponed till May 25, be held under Governor's Rule. Only 702 of 35,169 people voted; counting will take place today.
Talking to reporters at Jammu, Mehbooba said, "Dr Farooq seems be confused as he is making the contrary statements regarding the stones throwers".

Farooq polled 47,926 votes while Khan polled 37,369 votes. Results show that people are in favour of NC. Wars can't give any solution. In 2014, the polling percentage was 26%, compared with 7.14% this time.
But instead of lending support to Dr Abdullah, they unitedly snubbed and penalised him by giving majority votes to his close opponent of Peoples Democratic Party.
