The Baramulla Lok Sabha constituency in Jammu and Kashmir will vote on Monday, May 20.

Baramulla is set to witness a three-cornered contest between National Conference candidate Omar Abdullah, Peoples Conference nominee Sajad Lone and Independent candidate Sheikh Abdul Rashid alias Engineer Rashid who is lodged in Tihar jail in Delhi. Engineer Rashid was arrested on August 3, 2019, two days before Article 370 was abrogated.
