Udhampur: Balloting was sluggish in this Lok Sabha constituency in Jammu and Kashmir Thursday, with just 10 percent votes cast in the six districts in the first two hours of polling, officials said.

While Kathua assembly segment topped the voting tally at over 17 percent till 9 a.m., Kishtwar polled the lowest with a little over seven percent votes.

Voting was dull in the three Chenab valley districts of Ramban, Kishtwar and Doda.

The other three districts - Kathua, Reasi and Udhampur - saw comparatively more voting.

Voters in far-flung areas of Ramban district were rather less enthusiastic about casting their ballots than those in economically better-off areas.

Gul Muhammad, 75, cast his vote at the Ramsu high school polling station in Ramban.
