It is another step to further dis-empower Kashmiris politically


Srinagar, December 20 :

While terming the draft recommendation of the Delimitation Commission as divisive and unacceptable, CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Monday said it is another step to further dis-empower Kashmiris politically.

In a statement issued hear , he said that the distribution of newly created assembly constituencies with six going to Jammu and only one to Kashmir is not justified and it will increase gaps between regions and communities.

“The constitution of Delimitation Commission under J&K Reorganisation Act-2019 in itself is questionable as the Reorganisation Act has been challenged in the Supreme Court. The constitution of Delimitation Commission was akin to contempt of the court as how can the government of India do so when the matter is sub-judice,” he said.

“The CPI (M) had recently moved an application in the Apex Court for early hearing of the writ petition filed in 2019 against unconstitutional and undemocratic revocation of special status of J&K under Article 370 and J&K Reorganisation Act-2019,” Tarigami said.

“We had apprised the Apex Court that despite the matter being sub-judice, the government of India was taking irreversible steps which were harmful for the interests of people of J&K,” he said.

Tarigami said that we will continue our legal and political fight against the arbitrary, unconstitutional and undemocratic decisions of the BJP government.
