The process of delimitation has increased in Jammu and Kashmir. After the first meeting held in Delhi, the commission has now called for the profile report of all the districts. All the Deputy Commissioners have been asked to provide this information by sending letters. It has also been said that there will be communication with them in a virtual way soon. The date of the dialogue has not been given at this time. The issue of delimitation was also raised in the meeting held between Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday.

According to sources, all DCs have been asked to submit a report based on these information to the Election Office, Jammu and Kashmir by Monday. From here the information will be sent to the Delimitation Commission. Sources said that the reports of almost all the districts had reached till late in the evening on Monday. These are expected to be sent to the commission by Tuesday. According to sources, the Deputy Election Commissioner has also said that soon there will be a virtual communication regarding the delimitation so that the process can be carried forward. It is to be known that the Central Government has constituted a commission under the chairmanship of Ranjana Prakash Desai for delimitation. Its tenure has been extended for one year in the month of March.

So far only one meeting of the Delimitation Commission has been held. The second meeting could not be called due to corona infection. In the first meeting of the Delimitation Commission held in Delhi in the month of March, both the BJP MPs, Dr. Jitendra Singh and Jugal Kishore Sharma participated. The three National Conference MPs, Dr. Farooq Abdullah, Hasnain Masoodi and Mohammad Akbar Lone boycotted the meeting. His argument was that Article 370 has not been removed statutorily, which has been challenged in the Supreme Court.

Because of this they cannot be part of the meeting. In May, two months after this development, the NC’s central executive meeting decided that he could not abstain from the meeting of the Delimitation Commission. So they will be part of the meeting. With this decision of NC, it has become clear that the commission will be comfortable in completing its work.
