Early Times Report
jammu, Dec 4: J&K to witness emergence of young leadership after conclusion of the maiden District Development Councils (DDCs) election-thanks to the bold initiative taken by Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha to conduct these polls.
It is all due to the efforts of Lieutenant Governor that J&K is going to complete the process of setting up a three-tier Panchayati Raj system like other parts of the country.
Setting up a three-tier Panchayati Raj system not only strengthen democratic institutions at the grass-root level, it also provide opportunity to the youth to join politics to serve the people.
As per official data over 75 percent of the candidates, who are in the fray for 280 constituencies of DDCs of the 20 districts across J&K, are in the age group of 35 to 45. Nearly 20 percent of candidates are in the age group of 35 to 40 which is very encouraging making democracy vibrant in J&K.
Most of the political parties have fielded young candidates for eight-phased DDCs elections. Although some senior leaders have decided to jump into the electoral battle, the majority of the candidates contesting elections are young.
The constitution of DDCs, the second tier of Panchayati Raj institution, on a party basis has assumed great significance because J&K has no Legislative Assembly at the moment and the Upper House, the Legislative Council, was already abolished.
The youth leadership emerged after these elections will fill the vacuum created by politicians who have already lost credibility due to their misdeeds.
Encouraging turn-out in the first three phases of the DDCs elections is an indicator that people of J&K too have shown their interest in new and young faces in politics.
