Mehbooba Mufti

The Delimitation Commission for Jammu and Kashmir, headed by Justice (retd) Ranjana Prakash Desai, will arrive here on a four-day visit on Tuesday. The panel will be meeting political leaders, civil society members, and District Election Officers or Deputy Commissioners of 20 districts of the region to take inputs related to the ongoing process of delimitation in the Union Territory.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged that People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti will skip the meeting with Delimitation Commission today.

It is also not clear whether National Conference (NC), the CPI(M) and the National Panthers Party (NPP) would meet the commission’s members or not.

“As far as the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) is concerned, our stand is that these are autonomous bodies and the respective political parties will decide about it (participating in commission’s meeting). Whatever the parties think is suitable for them, they will take steps accordingly,” PAGD spokesperson and CPI(M) leader M Y Tarigami said.

J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) has confirmed that its delegation will meet the Commission.

The delimitation commission is tasked with redrawing the parliamentary and assembly constituencies in the Union Territory as mandated under the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019.

The Commission comprises of Chairperson, Justice (Retd) Ranjana Prakash Desai, ex-officio members Sushil Chandra (Election Commissioner) and KK Sharma (State Election Commissioner, J&K).

The Delimitation Commission was formed in March 2020 and its term had to be extended in March 2021 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Jugal Kishore Sharma, Jammu and Kashmir National Conference leaders Farooq Abdullah, Mohammad Akbar Lone and Hasnain Masoodi have been appointed by Lok Sabha Speaker as the five Associate members of the Commission.

The Commission’s visit comes after eight political parties from Jammu and Kashmir met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on June 24.

As per the rules, the number of Assembly seats in Jammu and Kashmir will go up from 83 to 90 following the completion of the delimitation exercise.

Twenty-four seats of the assembly will remain vacant as they fall under Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK)

Published

Over time JK Media has raised its voice for PDD/PHE daily wagers, Homeguards, Asha workers, JK Police SPOs to regularize them and continue raising them until all these employees don’t get regularized. Today JK Media Executive Aashish Kholi met a PDD Daily Wager, President Akhil Sharma, and talked about the 11,000 daily wagers, which are yet to be regularized.

While speaking, Akhil said, “I’m thankful that JK Media is raising our demands. My appeal to JK LG Manoj Sinha is that employees were being regularized till 2010 in Kashmir and Doda, while in Poonch till 2005, the employees were regularized. But in Jammu and Kathua, only employees were regularized till 1997, and further, no DPC took place. During the NC regime, an order was passed that all employees till 2010 should be standardized, but the order didn’t get implemented until today. A corporation has been formed, and soon the department will be privatized, so I want the employees who have given 20 years of their profession to the department regularly”.

“We are getting 6750 rupees as our monthly pay. With such a minimal amount, how can we look after our families? If we send our children to some good school, then all our income will only be spent on the school fee. Many of our co-workers have lost their lives or arms and legs, but no senior official has ever enquired about them and their policies. Recently Manoj Sinha announced 10 lakh rupees insurance for the daily wagers, according to which if any daily wager dies on-duty, then their family will get 10 lakh rupees compensation, but the order hasn’t been implemented yet”, he added.

“Director Sir told us to give our exams and wait for results. We are against it! We either demand online exams or mass promotion. When Kashmir students can get promoted without exams, why not us?” said a student

“I’m here to support these students. Their demand is genuine. They had online classes. Third wave is on it’s way and we can’t risk students’ lives. JK Board Authorities must listen to their appeal.” added their supporter

The students claimed the J&K Police to have abused and physically attacked them. They disagreed with the behaviour and said it was against the law and order.

“It’s J&K Police not the goons that attacked us today. I’m still 16 and it’s against the law to hit me. We aren’t terrorists, just small kids demanding something for ourselves. At least don’t hit us.” they said

“From my two trucks, the thieves have stolen one battery and around 250 litres of diesel. I have registered a case in Narwal Police Station yesterday night, but no police officer has yet visited. We have also informed the police officers in the PCR van for round-up they also didn’t take any action. So the police didn’t investigate our cases seriously”, a truck operator said.

The operators demanded that an investigation should take place and the thieves should be arrested immediately.
