Srinagar. Jammu and Kashmir (Jammu-Kashmir) There seems to be a growing controversy over the proposal for allocation of seats by the Delimitation Commission. Political parties of Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (National Conference) and pdp (PDP) has objected to this proposal. In fact, information has been received by the Delimitation Commission in its ‘Paper-1’ about the proposal of six additional seats in the Jammu region and one seat in the Kashmir Valley.
The commission’s meeting was attended by its associate members—five Lok Sabha members from Jammu and Kashmir. They have been asked to give their feedback on the proposal by the end of this month. Union Minister Jitendra Singh and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah were among the leaders present in the meeting. After the meeting, both the major political parties in Jammu and Kashmir have expressed their displeasure over the proposal.
Mehbooba Mufti accuses BJP
Mehbooba Mufti, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and PPD supremo (Mehbooba Mufti) Said that my doubts about the Delimitation Commission were not wrong. They want the people here to come face to face. This is the reason, ignoring the census, 6 seats have been proposed for one area and 1 seat for another area. This commission was created only to fulfill the interests of BJP so that people can be divided on regional basis. The real plan is to impose a government on Jammu and Kashmir that will justify the unconstitutional decision taken in August 2019.
What did Sajjad Lone say
On the other hand, Sajjad Lone has said that the proposal of the Delimitation Commission is not acceptable at all. It smells of favoritism. It is a shock to those who believe in democracy.
What did Omar Abdullah say
Omar Abdullah wrote on Twitter, ‘The draft of the recommendations prepared by the Jammu and Kashmir Delimitation Commission is rejected. In this, out of the new seats added for the assembly, 6 have been given to Jammu while 1 seat has been given to Kashmir. This is not justified on the basis of 2011 census data.
Omar Abdullah said, “It is very disappointing that the commission has allowed such recommendations to be made to further the political agenda of the BJP and not on the data which they should have considered only.” It is a political approach as opposed to a scientific one.
What is delimitation?
Simply put, delimitation means determining the boundary. That is, the system of fixing the boundaries of the Lok Sabha and assembly constituencies of any state is called delimitation. Usually this process is for voting. The Delimitation Commission is constituted after every census by the Central Government under Article 82 of the Constitution to determine the boundaries of constituencies for Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha elections.
