The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has improved its tally to 25 seats in the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir, but was unable to reach the targeted halfway mark despite a record voter turnout.
People in the Kashmir Valley continued to repose their faith in the Peoples Democratic Party (28 seats) and the National Conference (15 seats), but the Hindu nationalist party swept the polls in Jammu. The Congress won three of the four seats in Ladakh.
The vote share of the BJP increased from 12.45% in 2008 to 23% in 2014.
