New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered “special congratulations” to voters of the Anantnag-Rajouri Lok Sabha constituency in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday for a record turnout, saying it is a “vibrant testament to their democratic spirit”.

The constituency, which went to the polls on May 25 in the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha elections, has recorded a turnout of 54.84 per cent.

The Kashmir Valley has seen robust participation of voters in the polls, with even areas traditionally associated with low polling witnessing a good turnout — a high in the last few decades.

Modi said in a post on X, “A very special congratulations to my sisters and brothers of Anantnag-Rajouri for the record turnout in the Lok Sabha polls. Their enthusiastic participation is a vibrant testament to their democratic spirit.”
