ECI to discuss remote electronic voter machine, not polls with political parties tomorrow

Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 14: Although political parties of Jammu and Kashmir are over enthusiastic over a meeting called by the Election Commission of India (ECI) on Monday, this much-publicized meeting has nothing special about the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
Leaders of political parties are thinking that the meeting has been called by ECI to discuss the next assembly elections in J&K but the meeting is convened only to demonstrate the functioning of the multi-constituency prototype Remote Voting Machine.
The ECI has developed a remote electronic voter machine (RVM) with migrant voters in mind. On Monday, the ECI will demonstrate the working of the RVM to political parties from all over the country at the upcoming meeting. The invitations were extended to these political parties in December last year.
According to a letter written by B.C.PATRA, Secretary ECI all political parties including eight recognised national parties have been invited on January 16 to demonstrate the functioning of the multi-constituency prototype RVM.
Political parties in Jammu and Kashmir have started reappearing on the scene as speculations are rife that Assembly elections are likely to be held in the Union Territory either in April or September. Jammu and Kashmir is without an elected government since June 2018 when BJP dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) followed by the resignation of the then Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
Five months later, on November 28, 2018, then Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik dissolved the legislative assembly minutes after Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP staked a claim to form the government with the support of Congress and the National Conference.
A month later on December 19, 2018, then President Ram Nath Kovind issued a proclamation promulgating President's Rule in J&K under article 356 of the Constitution of India.
Eight months later on August 5, 2019, the BJP government abrogated Article 370 and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
