Some warm up to delimitation, call after return of PAGD leaders

Leaders of certain political parties have favoured participation in the exercise to redraw Lok Sabha and assembly constituencies in the Union Territory, while those belonging to the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) said that they would decide on it after their leadership returns from New. PAGD’s District Development Council members, however, said that since the leadership went for talks, it should participate in other processes as well.

“Once our party leadership comes back from Delhi, we will decide on participation,” National Conference leader Nasir Aslam Wani told ET. PDP chief spokesperson Suhail Bukhari said that the commission was yet to take any initiative. “Let us wait for the commission to invite us for wider consultative process,” said Bukhari.

J&K Congress chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir said that everybody who participated in the meeting in New Delhi has already participated on the wider consultative process on delimitation process. “Seventy per cent of the content of home minister’s interaction after the meeting in Delhi was about delimitation process…if all the leaders were part of that meeting, then I don’t think there is any problem in going to any platform within J&K,” said Mir.

The J&K Apni Party leader Ghulam Hassan Mir said that all political parties should participate in the delimitation, as it gives sanctity to the process and paves way for restoration of democracy. “The governor’s rule is an exception to democracy…those who aren’t participating in this process are shying away from their responsibility,” said Mir. A J&K People’s Conference leader said that if NC’s Lok Sabha members participated in the delimitation exercise, then everybody else should join and try to get the best out of the exercise.

NC’s parliamentarian had earlier showed reluctance to join the delimitation as associate members, but some leaders have not hinted that the decision might change. “This dialogue process started in Delhi should not hit any roadblock. Delimitation exercise is a constitutional effort, in which everyone should participate,” a DDC member from NC told ET.
