Srinagar, May 07: National Conference (NC) president and Member of Parliament Dr. Farooq Abdullah Saturday reiterated the party's stand on delimitation report, saying no amount of “gerrymandering” can change the ground situation in J&K, Ladakh.
Farooq Abdullah was interacting with media persons on the side-lines of his visit to Boteng, Kulgam, where he had gone to condole with the bereaved family of party's vice- district president Kulgam, Mohammad Yousuf Dar, a party statement said.
Dr Farooq said that the party's stand on the entire process of delimitation was as clear as crystal. He said the entire process was a “smoke screen” to draw a veil over the obscure agenda at work.
“The entire exercise has been blind to the universally accepted and practised criterions and principles with regards to electoral representation. However, no amount of gerrymandering will save the BJP, and its proxies from the wrath of people. People of J&K have made it a point to punish BJP and its proxies for all they have done to J&K. No matter how many false fronts they put up, people won't forgive those who have robbed the region of its unique status, its prized historical individuality and dignity. The writing is on the wall,” he said.
“There is groundswell of anger against BJP and its proxies across J&K, Ladakh. Every sector of our economy is bleeding. Our youth are at crossroads, our traders are facing unprecedented situations. The plight of our tourism players, transporters and artisans is no different. Inflation, unemployment and development deficit has compounded the worries of our people immensely,” he added.
Joined in by party functionaries, Dr Farooq offered Fateha for the deceased on the occasion and prayed for eternal repose to the departed soul in the highest echelons of the Jannat.
Later Dr Farooq visited Sahali, BalpuraPahalgam, where he interacted with the party's local unit functionaries.
RajniPatil expresses dismay over delimitation report
AICC incharge Jammu & Kashmir RajaniPatil (MP) Saturday held threadbare discussions over the current political situation, besides organizational affairs and activities with senior leaders of Kashmir here in Srinagar.
Patil also received feedback with regard to organizational affairs and activities in all the districts of the valley, a party statement said.
The AICC inchargeRajaniPatil interacted with former Legislators, PCC Office bearers, District Presidents and other party functionaries covering all the districts of Kashmir while reviewing the current political situation in Kashmir.
During the interaction with party leaders in which the delimitation report also came under discussion, RajniPatil expressed dismay over the Delimitation Report, terming it as biased and politically motivated aiming to benefit a particular political party. She was also briefed about the ground situation, especially the large-scale resentment amongst the general public against the unexpected delimitation report, the statement added.
Patil said people of Jammu and Kashmir have vehemently opposed the delimitation report as the Commission has not followed the basic norms thereby rendering great injustice to people of J&K in terms of the delimitation of the parliamentary and assembly constituencies.
Adding that the delimitation report is not acceptable to people, Patil said the Commission has not taken care of topography, connectivity, population and other parameters of the areas before concluding the final report.
