Lok Sabha election 2019 results Live update: Mehbooba Mufti concedes defeat in Anantnag, says people's anger against her justified

The National Conference (NC) on Thursday established an unassailable lead in all three Lok Sabha seats in the Kashmir Valley while former Chief Minister and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti lost in her erstwhile bastion Anantnag. Emerging as the victor in his typical grand style, the 83-year-old four-time former Chief Minister and NC President Abdullah was miles ahead with 51,000 votes over his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Aga Syed Mohsin.

The surprise winner in the Valley was Justice (Retired) Hasnain Masoodi, who initially trailed behind both Mehbooba Mufti and Ghulam Ahmad Mir, the state president of the Congress.

BJP's Jitendra Singh, a Union Minister of State, defeated Congress candidate Vikramaditya Singh from Udhampur by over 3.48 lakh votes.

"We fought the election and tried to have an alternative to the BJP and the NDA and put it before the country. The country did not accept it. The reality is that the places from where we were expecting the opposition to win, the number of seats from there has come down rather than going up," Abdullah told reporters here.
