Haji Farooq Ahamd Mir is the Congress candidate from Baramulla, which is one of the six seats in Jammu and Kashmir. There is a direct fight between the two state based parties, National Conference (NC) and PDP. The seat has been a stronghold of the NC, whose senior leader Saifuddin Soz had won the seat four times. However, PDP candidate Muzaffar Baig snatched seat from the NC in 2014. This time the PDP has not repeated Baig and has given ticket to Abdul Qayoom Wani.

The NC candidate is Mohammad Akbar Lone, who has justified pro-Pakistani chant and invited severe criticism from Indians, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
