Residents of Pargwal protest against delimitation draft

Jammu, February 19 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the residents of Pargwal area of Jammu region held a strong protest demonstration against draft report of the Delimitation Commission.

Hundreds of people gathered in Pargwal and lodged strong protest over re-naming of Chhamb Assembly segment to Khour. The protesters were led by senior Congress leader, Tara Chand.

Moreover, the locals strongly objected to merging of Pargwal tehsil with the Akhnoor assembly segment which was earlier the part of Chhamb assembly segment, whereas, Chowki-Chora tehsil and Maira Mandrian tehsil have been merged with the proposed Khour assembly segment.

While speaking on the occasion, Tara Chand said the distance from Khour to Chowki-Chora is around 100 kilometers and it seems that the Delimitation Commission ignoring the topographical and geographical aspects has merged these tehsils with Chhamb Assembly segment to benefit the leaders of the BJP.
