Jammu, July 08: National Conference delegation led by Provincial President, Jammu, Devender Singh Rana Thursday called on the Delimitation Commission in the winter capital and presented a memorandum of demands.
A party statement said that NC leaders said they have been a "strong votary of strengthening democracy in Jammu and Kashmir and always espouse the cause of the people of Jammu and Kashmir as per their aspirations which are diverse and multidimensional".
They said, "Any Delimitation process has a vital role in empowering each constituent to be an equal shareholder in the process of democracy so that each one feels empowered and not feels relegated, isolated, disconnected or disempowered".
The delegation urged the visiting Delimitation Commission to "give its due to all parts of Jammu region so that our commitment for the equitable empowerment of all regions and sub-regions does not get dented".
We have been and are a strong votary of strengthening democracy in Jammu and Kashmir. We always espouse the cause of the people of Jammu and Kashmir as per their aspirations which are diverse and multidimensional, the delegation members said.
According to the party statement the memorandum reads, “This Delimitation Commission in the circumstances that it has been constituted is unique and its findings can have far reaching consequences in shaping the future of Jammu and Kashmir. History will judge its decision and our role critically and if we fail we shall fail our people and the Nation as a whole.”
“We are confident that the Delimitation Commission shall work in the most transparent, judicious and fair manner providing justice to all in delimiting the constituencies as per the constitutional framework based on the basic tenets of Delimitation – population, geography, topography, area, physical features, contiguity, convenience of administrative units and facilities of easy communication and approachability of public convenience,” the memorandum further adds.
Talking about the far flung areas of Jammu the memorandum said that rural areas must be judiciously decided so that there is accessibility and ease of public delivery to enable effective governance and approachability of public representatives.
