Proposal of Delimitation Commission: PDP says their apprehensions turned correct, NC rejected proposal, Bukhari blames Mehbooba, Lone castigates NC

Srinagar: Reacting sharply over the reports that Delimitation Commission has proposed six additional assembly seats for Jammu and only one for Kashmir, National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party have said that the proposal is unacceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Outrightly rejecting the proposal, PDP Spokesperson Suhail Bukhari said that apprehensions of PDP about the motive and intentions of the Commission have turned correct as it has been proved now that this Commission was created at the behest of BJP to suit their political agenda.

“PDP was right from day one saying that Delimitation Commission will be biased and will divide people on the basis of caste, community and religion. How come it is possible Kashmir which is both geographical and population wise larger than Jammu will get only one seat. It simply means that it is the handiwork of present BJP Government as it will suit their agenda and political ambitions. We have already rejected this Commission and now we reject its proposal,” Bukhari said.

Pertinently, there are reports that Delimitation Commission in its Draft has proposed six additional assembly seats for Jammu and one for Kashmir Valley. Besides, the Commission has also proposed nine seats for Schedule Tribes and seven seats for Schedule Casts.

The meeting of the Commission was held in New Delhi today in which National Conference Parliament members were also present.
