By: Wani Fazil VOV
J&K Congress has decided to meet the delimitation commission both in Jammu and Srinagar while the PAGD has said that they have not taken any collective decision whether to meet commission or not.
The National Conference in the earlier meetings of the delimitation commission has boycotted the proceedings and now they have decided to take a final decision in this matter in the coming days.
According to the news agencies including PTI senior leaders and district units of Congress have been asked to take out time for the meeting so that they can represent their own respective districts in the meeting. However, officials said on Sunday that the party has also expressed regret for the short notice given to the leaders living in remote areas of the valley.
The JKPCC spokesperson told the media that it is set to send delegations to both Srinagar and Jammu to meet the commission. The JKPCC also lamented in a statement that the Delimitation Commission was not just meant to meet with political leaders but also the district head of all the J&K districts.
Seven districts of Jammu region have been allotted one hour each while five districts of Kashmir half hour each, JKPCC Chief Spokesperson Ravinder Sharma said.
The commission should consider suggestions of the congress party in the larger interests and invite more suggestions and requests directly apart from routing through Deputy Commissioners (DCs) or District Education Officers (DEOs), he added.
The commission, which was constituted in March last year with a one-year time frame, should consider giving reasonable time and space to all, according to Sharma.
