The electoral fate of nine candidates, including National Conference president Farooq Abdullah, will be known today as counting of votes for the bypoll to Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency is underway. Seven other candidates are in the fray apart from Abdullah and Khan.
Only 7.14 per cent of voters had turned up at booths for the April 9 vote that was marred by unprecedented violence.
After he won the Srinagar by-poll by a margin of over 10,000 votes Farooq Abdullah appealed to the President Pranab Mukherjee to impose Governor's rule in Jammu and Kashmir.

Liverpool Forward Sadio Mane All Set To Go Under Knife
Until their hard-fought 2-1 win at Stoke last Saturday, Liverpool had not won in the four games in which Mane was absent. As well as being their top scorer with 13 goals this term, he seems to have a galvanising effect on his team-mates.
Abdullah, after winning the election said he would not resign from the parliamentary seat since he "believes in democracy", putting to rest speculations of his resignation due to low low voter turnout. He later joined Congress, which had entered a pre-poll alliance with the National Conference. The only time Farooq lost an election was in 2014 when he suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of his protégé and former PDP leader Tariq Hamid Karra from Srinagar.
The NC said it would not celebrate the victory because of the violence on polling day on April 9 in which eight civilians died in firing by security forces.
I request them not to do such things which will add to the fire and render it uncontrollable, Abdullah said.
