Congressman Usman Majid won Bandipora defeating his nearest rival PDP’s Nizam Ud Din Bhat by 3784 votes.

Last time when Bandipora went to polls, Bhat emerged victorious defeating Majid by a margin of 820 votes.

In 2002 elections, people had voted Majid to assembly on the ticket of Kuka Parray’s Awami League. (Parray was former renegade-turned-politician who engineered a mass surrender of militants and eventually helped the Indian Army to nab militancy.)

Majid eventually rose up to become state minister in 2002 PDP-Congress coalition. But after Parray was killed by militants in 2003, Majid became Parray’s last ‘flag-bearer’.
