Jammu, October 08 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Panthers Party Chairman, Harsh Dev Singh has said that the Modi-led Indian regime is repeatedly postponing Assembly elections in the territory on one pretext or another.
Harsh Dev Singh addressing public meetings at different places in Udhampur’s Chenani constituency, said that the vested interests were the biggest stumbling block in the restoration of popular govt in IIOJK.
“It was during 2014 elections that the BJP promised Delimitation of Assembly constituencies in J&K. It however floundered in initiating the process of delimitation till 2020 and even after that the delimitation process continues to proceed at a snail’s pace thereby giving the impression of lack of seriousness on the part of powers that be for restoring democratic Govt in J&K,” he said.
“With the last Assembly having been dissolved in 2018, the elections to legislature were required to be held immediately thereafter in consonance with the rule of law. The BJP regime, however, not only defied the democratic norms and procedures but also overlooked the basic law enunciated by the Supreme Court which envisaged holding of Assembly elections within 6 months in all states where Assemblies were prematurely dissolved”, divulged Singh.
