Delimitation exercise in J&K will have dangerous consequences: CPI(M)

State Secretary CPI (M) Ghulam Nabi Malik on Saturday expressed concern over media  reports that the Government of India is mulling to hold delimitation exercise in Jammu and Kashmir ahead of Assembly elections.

In a statement here Malik said, "Any such exercise will have dangerous consequences for the State as the exercise will be in violation of the freeze imposed by J&K State Legislature till 2026. If the delimitation is necessary, the government must wait for the Assembly to be reconstituted first. Taking such a decision before the elections clearly betrays a mischievous intent and will neither be ethically correct nor legally tenable."
