By: Mudasir Khan VOV
The Delimitation Commission which recently has given the draft to the associate members is likely to get a two-month extension to complete its exercise in Jammu and Kashmir.
News reports have said that the extension will come as the term of the commission is going to end in early March 2022, and they may need more time to submit their report to the central government.
According to Tribune in its news report on the likely extension of the commission it has said in its news report as follows.
The panel, headed by former Supreme Court judge Ranjana Prakash Desai and Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra and the J&K election commissioner as its ex-officio members, was formed in March 2020. It was granted a one-year extension last year.
In its draft report shared with its five associated members — all Lok Sabha members from Jammu and Kashmir— the delimitation panel has proposed an overhaul of the Assembly and Lok Sabha constituencies in the UT.
The commission has asked the associate members to give their inputs and objections to the draft in the coming days.
