NC submits objections to delimitation panel

Srinagar, March 05 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference (NC) has submitted 18-page objections to the draft of the Delimitation Commission, constituted by the Modi regime to redraw assembly constituencies in the territory.

The NC associate members in their “dissent” re-emphasised their earlier stated position that in the first instance the “entire delimitation exercise did not correspond to law” and even while redrawing boundaries, the commission “grossly violated guiding principles”.

Senior NC leader and one of five associate members of the commission Hasnain Masoodi in an interview said, “I, myself, filed our party’s 18-page objections or dissent to the commission this afternoon. We continued to re-emphasise the points, which we have been doing for the last one year or so, that this sole exercise is unconstitutional as it offends the constitution. It is not in tune with the core constitutional values. That was the baseline of our dissent (objections).”

After the associate members submitted their objections, the draft proposals may be put in the public domain anytime by the commission.
