Srinagar: National Conference (NC) Monday rejected the draft recommendations of the J&K Delimitation Commission saying that the draft proposal in its current form was biased towards Kashmir and was therefore unacceptable to NC.
A statement of NC issued here said that NC spokesman Imran Nabi Dar rejected the draft recommendations of the J&K Delimitation Commission proposing six new seats to the Jammu region and only one in Kashmir.
“Contrary to what is being shared by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its cronies in Kashmir, NC MPs expressed complete resentment on the delimitation commission draft on seat sharing,” he said. “Recommendations of the J&K Delimitation Commission are unacceptable. They reek of brazen discrimination. The distribution of newly-created assembly constituencies with six seats going to Jammu and only one to Kashmir is not justified by the data of the 2011 census. The recommendations also give ditch to scientific approach and are simply meant to serve BJP’s political interests.”
