"The Congress has not fielded any candidate for the seat."
Srinagar, May 7 - Polling in Jammu and Kashmir for two Lok Sabha seats began Wednesday at 7 a.m., officials said.

As many as 19 candidates are vying for the two parliamentary constituencies - Baramulla and Ladakh.

In Baramulla, incumbent MP Sharief Ud-Din Shariq of the National Conference is pitted against Ghulam Mohammad Mir from the Bharatiya Janata Party and Muzaffar Hussain Baig of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The Congress has not fielded any candidate for the seat.
