Opposition Resisting Delimitation Commission Recommendations Involved In Communal, Sectarian Politics: Devender Singh Rana



Devender Singh Rana

BJP leader Devender Singh Rana took a veiled dig at the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and National Conference (NC) for opposing delimitation commission recommendations for increasing assembly seats in the Jammu region by six to 43 and in Kashmir region from 46 to 47 and alleged that these parties are involved in communal and sectarian politics.

“Those people raising questions over the delimitation commission recommendations are involved in communal and sectarian politics. The decision has been taken based on facts,” Devender said.

The BJP leader further alleged that Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti opposing the delimitation commission recommendations, wants limited power to one community.

“They (opposition) say that they are leaders of Jammu and Kashmir, so why they are not happy that a community is getting its rights. This shows its mentality,” Rana said.

“The Kashmiri Muslims are secular, but the leaders there want to create a misbalance so that the power remains in their hands,” he said.

He further showed confidence that BJP would come to power when the elections occurred in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Delimitation Commission, tasked with redrawing assembly seats in Jammu and Kashmir, has proposed increasing assembly seats in the Jammu region by six to 43 and in Kashmir region from 46 to 47. It also proposed six additional assembly seats for the Jammu region and one for the Kashmir Valley, nine seats for Scheduled Tribes and seven seats for Scheduled Castes in the Union Territory.

Reacting to the recommendations made by the Commission, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad had earlier said that seats reserved for Scheduled Caste should be distributed equally between Jammu and Kashmir regions.

The Commission shared Paper I describing the proposed seat allocation at the level of districts with all the members. They have been requested their views or suggestions by December 31, 2021.


In over two months, J&K Govt sacks 28 teachers




With the termination of two more teachers of the School Education Department, the government in the past more than two months has sacked at least 28 teachers from the services for remaining absent unauthorizedly.
In an order issued by the Director of School Education Kashmir (DSEK), said that these teachers have been remaining absently unauthorized from their legitimate duties.
One of the orders issued by the DSEK, a copy of which lies with the news agency states that one among the terminated teachers continues to remain absent un-authorizedly for 19 years.
“One of the teachers posted at Primary School Khumriyal in north Kashmir’s Kupwara remained unauthorizedly absent from her legitimate duties from 01-07-2002, and the teacher did not resume her legitimate duties and continued to remain unauthorizedly absent for 19 years,” it reads.
It also states that the teacher was provided with an opportunity to be heard by DSEK on 06-07-2021 wherein she was directed to present herself before the directorate along with a statement of defence within seven days.
DSEK said that the teacher responded the notice on 15-07-2021 but on its examination it was found unsatisfactory and unsubstantiated and could not justify her long unauthorized absence
“The issue was placed before the Designated Committee and pursuant to the decision of the committee, the teacher is hereby removed from the service of the State in terms of Article 113 of J&K Civil Services Rules (Volume I) of 1956 and rule 30(vii) of J&KCCA rules 1956,” it reads.
Likewise, another teacher was also terminated for remaining unauthorized absent from her legitimate duties.
DSEK said that the teacher was absent from 01-10-2014 and had proceeded outside the country without obtaining prior station leave permission or the sanction of leave from the competent authority.
On January-14, the government has terminated three teachers of the School Education Department from the services for remaining absent un-authorizedly.
In the first week of December-2021, the government sacked one teacher followed by six more in the last week of November-2021 for remaining absent un-authorizedly
