Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah is contesting the Srinagar seat that fell vacant after the resignation of Peoples Democratic Party leader Tariq Hameed Karra during last year's unrest following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.
By-election to West Delhi's Rajouri Garden assembly seat is seen as the trailer to the upcoming municipal elections this month. The seat fell vacant after the Aam Adami Party's Jarnail Singh quit to contest the Punjab Assembly polls held earlier this year.
