Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 22: Amid the demand of political parties to conduct assembly elections in J&K to install a democratically elected government, BJP on Monday said that polls will be held anytime.
Addressing meeting corporators of Jammu Municipal Corporation, former speaker and ex-Deputy Chief Minister, Kavinder Gupta said that the party should be geared up for upcoming polls in the UT as the dates could be announced anytime as the delimitation process is in its final stages.
According to an official handout issued by the party, Kavinder Gupta said that time is less and there is a lot of work that is required to be accomplished before the elections set in therefore it is time to shun lethargy and start working for the success of the party as soon as possible.
Kavinder asked the corporators to reach out to the masses and disseminate information about public welfare initiatives taken up by the BJP leadership and the upcoming plans to raise a link between the party and the public.
He said that irrespective of position in the party, every single member of BJP has the sole responsibility of strengthening the party base in whatever way he or she could do the same.
Earlier J&K BJP president Ravinder Raina has hinted that assembly elections in the Union Territory (UT) of Jammu and Kashmir will be held by the beginning of 2022 to install a democratically elected government.
“We are confident that assembly elections will be held by the start of the next year because the Union Government has repeated assured to install a democratic government in J&K”, Ravinder Raina said.
Raina said that process of redrawing assembly constituencies in J&K will be completed by the end of this year.
“The Delimitation Commission will complete its task this year followed by assembly elections in J&K,” he said while referring towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Independence Day address this year. Raina asserted that BJP is well prepared to participate in the assembly elections.
To expedite the process of redrawing parliament and assembly constituencies in Jammu and Kashmir, the Delimitation Commission had visited Union Territory from July 6 to July 9 to get first-hand information from the grassroots.
During a three-day-long stay in J&K, members of the panel interacted with all stakeholders including political parties, officers, and public representatives.
The decision of the Delimitation Commission to visit J&K was important follow-up development of the all-party meeting convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 24 with leaders of different political parties of the UT.
The Delimitation Commission for Jammu and Kashmir, headed by retired Supreme Court Judge Ranjana Prakash Desai was constituted by the Union Government on March 6, 2020, to redraw assembly constituencies of the Union Territory in accordance with the provisions of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, which bifurcated the erstwhile state into union territories of J&K and Ladakh.
The elections to the Assembly of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir will be held only after the process of delimitation is completed.
Delimitation Commission on June 23 held consultations with all Deputy Commissioners of J&K on restructuring the existing assembly constituencies and carving out seven new seats. In the virtual meeting, inputs were gathered on how to make the assembly seats more geographically compact.
