Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 19: Jammu & Kashmir's transition from State to Union Territory (UT) has been smooth. Many people had expected that soon after J&K would start functioning as UT, the delimitation process would begin but till date no announcement has been made in this regard.
The delimitation would bring Jammu at par with Kashmir as it would lead to increase of 7 seats in the J&K Legislative Assembly. After the delimitation is completed Jammu will have 44 and Kashmir 46 Assembly seats in the Union Territory of J&K.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said," Delimitation will end discrimination being faced by the Jammu region."
Pertinently, in the erstwhile State of J&K, Jammu region could only send 37 members into the Assembly while 46 MLAs were elected from Kashmir and 4 from Leh and Kargil districts.
The analyst said that the Kashmir-centric leaders, who ruled J&K in the past, has frozen the delimitation process to ensure that no Jammu leader becomes the Chief Minister.
"People of Jammu are eagerly waiting for delimitation process to commence as it would bring them closer to their goal of seeing a leader from Jammu holding CM's post in the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir," analyst added.
He said that Kashmir-centric politicians know it very well that they have lost the plot and they are in no position to call the shots anymore.
"Political detainees including the three former Chief Ministers- Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah and the PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti seem to have realized that their political careers have ended and the hegemony of Kashmir over Jammu is over," the analyst said.
An observer said that more than 30 Kashmir-centric leaders who were shifted from posh Centaur Hotel at the banks of Dal Lake to MLA Hostel at MA Road in Srinagar are waiting for their masters "to blink so that they could be free again."
Citing media reports, the observer said more than 30-odd Kashmir-centric leaders are waiting for Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah to give a written assurance to J&K administration that they won't issue any provocative statement so that they too could sign the bonds and move out. "Time has come for the Jammu leaders to join their hands to end the dominance of the Kashmir-centric leaders. After delimitation they won't fall short of numbers to form their own government. Centre setting up Delimitation Commission would set the ball rolling for political process to begin," the observer added.
