Delimitation Commission rectified historic blunders in JK: Altaf Thakur

Bandipora, Feb 19: BJP JK spokesperson Altaf Thakur Saturday said that delimitation has rectified historical blunders and will ensure equal rights to voters of Jammu and Kashmir.
“Addition of 6 seats to Jammu and 1 to Kashmir has set right the true democracy in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said addressing a press conference at Bandipora.
He said that empowered Jammu will compete and march ahead with Kashmir leading to peace progress and prosperity in Jammu and Kashmir.
“Criterion applied by the Delimitation Commission has distributed seats proportionate to population subject to application norms of law like geographic terrain connectivity communication etc,” he said
Thakur said BJP is thankful to the Delimitation Commission for “huge and pro-people’ exercise and decision taken which has come out in the shape of a draft report.
“New Parliamentary constituencies Rajouri, Poonch, Anantnag will stabilize nationalistic voices in the constituency. Radical separatists of South Kashmir will be electronically countered and balanced by the nationalistic voices from Rajouri, Poonch. This constituency which is carved out is also justified as all Parliamentary constituencies are now spread equally to 18 Assembly constituencies or so. It will also lead to more compatibility and understanding between two provinces and new political vistas to people of Poonch, Rajouri leading to their empowerment,” he said.
“New constituencies carved out will bring development to the doorsteps of the hitherto ignored and politically marginalized areas like Paddar will see real developments for the first time with their own constituency,” Thakur said.
He said that there are some issues in some areas which are justified in some cases. While carving out constituencies uniform principles have been followed but even then there are some areas where aspirations of people are not met. He said that Delimitation Commission is an independent constitutional body headed by a former Supreme Court Judge which has taken decisions appropriate to its stature. It has heard and taken into consideration the point of view of everyone.
