Political Significance:

This constituency has a unique electoral pattern compared with the remaining five Lok Sabha seats in the state. In Udhampur, unlike other constituencies of Jammu and Kashmir, the regional political parties have not managed to win a single general election and only the two pivotal national political parties have been successful. The seat has been a primary stronghold of the Congress, although the BJP won three Lok Sabha sessions during 1996-99. Ch. Lal Singh of the Congress has been a popular leader in this constituency of Udhampur, having won in 2004 and 2009 general elections. 

Present Political Scenario:

BJP may have an outside chance here

In Udhampur BJP has chosen state spokesperson, Dr. Jitender Singh . Even in 2009, BJP had lost the seat narrowly despite taking pole position in more assembly segments than Congress.
