2009 Parliamentary Elections in Jammu and Kashmir

2009 Parliamentary Elections in Jammu and Kashmir

(p.190) 7 2009 Parliamentary Elections in Jammu and Kashmir
Party Competition in Indian States

Rekha Chowdhary

Oxford University Press

The chapter locates the 2009 Parliamentary elections in the context of the changes taking place in the politics of the state in the first decade of this century. It is important to understand the implications of the expansion of the democratic sphere for separatist politics as well as the implications of the separatist movement on democratic politics. The chapter also seeks to analyse the intra-state complexities, particularly the inter-regional tensions and assertions and their implications for the power politics of the state. Since the 2009 Parliamentary elections took place in the state against a backdrop of massive mobilization and turbulence in both Jammu and Kashmir in 2008, it specifically focuses on the Amarnath Agitation and its implications for the democratic and separatist politics of the state. It also makes detailed references to the 2008 Assembly elections which preceded the Parliamentary elections and seeks to compare the political response in these two elections.

Keywords:   Jammu, Kashmir, conflict, separatism in Kashmir, democracy in Kashmir, Amarnath agitation, regional polarization in Jammu Kashmir
