Conduct assembly elections within six months, no logic for more delay: Azad

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 8: After the declaration of the results of the Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat polls, the demand for holding the maiden assembly elections in J&K gained momentum.
Former Chief Minister and veteran leader Ghulam Nabi Azad is the first among politicians who raised the demand of holding assembly elections in J&K.
“There is no reason to further delay assembly elections in J&K”, Azad told reporters at north Kashmir’s Kupwara district after addressing a rally.
“Law and order situation has improved considerably. After the improvement in the weather assembly elections should be held within six months”, he said.
Notably, the Election Commission of India on November 25 completed the exercise of revising the existing electoral rolls by incorporating youngsters who have attained the age of 18 years on October 1 or earlier in the new voter lists.
The final electoral rolls have a total of 83,59,771 electors, out of which 42,91,687 are male, 184 are the third gender and 40,67,900 are females. The elector population ratio has increased from 0.52 to 0.58 during this Special Summary Review (SSR). The gender ratio of the final electoral roll has increased from 921 to 948.
The Election Commission of India (ECI) had already set a new deadline of November 25 for the final date for publication of electoral rolls in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
To provide an opportunity to youngsters attaining the age of 18 years on October 1 or earlier the deadline was extended from October 31 to November 25.
The completion of the exercise will pave the way for holding elections in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. This would be the first election in the UT after the abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the erstwhile state of J&K into two Union Territories by the BJP-led NDA government in August 2019.
After the completion of the delimitation exercise in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Election Commission of India ordered pre-revision activities in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir on 10th June 2022, which primarily included the task of mapping the existing electoral rolls of 83 pre-delimitation constituencies to the post-delimitation 90 Constituencies, in accordance with the Delimitation Commission's Order, rationalization of polling stations and integrations of the electoral rolls.
