Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 10: Although the Chief Electoral Officer has extended the last date for receiving objections and suggestions regarding reservations for different categories, the BJP started the preparation of panels for potential candidates for all wards of the Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC).
As seats of prominent leaders of the party are likely to be reserved after the issuance of notification for reservations, the BJP is finding it difficult to select potential candidates for these seats.
Highly placed sources said that after the Chief Electoral Officer issued notification of reservation for different categories including women, Scheduled Tribe (STs), and Scheduled Castes (SCs) BJP was forced to redevise its strategy for the coming ULB elections, especially the prestigious JMC.
As reported earlier, the CEO has already issued the notification for the reservation of seats of Mayor and Deputy Mayor of the JMC for women.
Seats of some other prominent BJP have also been notified to be reserved for different categories.
Sources said that all Mandal and district presidents of the party have been directed to prepare a panel of three potential candidates for each ward of JMC.
Pandurang K. Pole Chief Electoral Officer stated in a notification that several requests have been received from Deputy Commissioners as well as political parties and other stakeholders to extend the last date for filing objections/suggestions on account of holidays and the requirement of more time to look into the details of proposals.
“Now, therefore, keeping in view the demand of various stakeholders and in order to give a fair opportunity to all stakeholders to make their claims/objections, the last date for receiving objections/suggestions w.r.t the draft reservation notification is hereby extended up to 14th September 2023”, the notification reads as.
