Jammu and kashmir : Pakistan has expressed its displeasure over the final report of the Jammu and Kashmir Delimitation Commission released on Thursday. The new government of Jammu and Kashmir formed under the leadership of Shahbaz Sharif has lodged a strong objection to the new political map of Jammu and Kashmir, saying that it is a conspiracy to weaken the Muslims in Kashmir.
Pakistan’s foreign minister summoned the Indian embassy chief and objected to the report of the Jammu and Kashmir Delimitation Commission on behalf of Pakistan.
Let us tell you that before the fresh elections were held in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370, the Central Government had entrusted the task of re-determining the boundaries of the assembly and Lok Sabha seats of this union territory to the Delimitation Commission.
The six-month term of this commission is ending today. A day before this the commission submitted its final report. In which a proposal has been made for the delimitation of 90 assembly seats and 5 Lok Sabha seats in Jammu and Kashmir.
Objective is to deprive Muslims of voting rights: Pak
Pakistan’s foreign ministry on delimitation of seats called on the head of the Embassy of India and said that the purpose of the delimitation commission is to “denigrate and weaken the Muslim majority population of Jammu and Kashmir”.
Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry further said that Pakistan categorically rejects the report of the alleged Delimitation Commission of Jammu and Kashmir.
Pak said – Various political parties of Kashmir have already rejected
In this matter, a statement issued by Pakistan said that the report of delimitation has already been rejected by various political parties of Jammu and Kashmir. With this effort, India wants to legalize its illegal step taken on 5 August 2019. Let us tell you that on August 5, 2019, when India withdrew the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, then there was strong opposition in Pakistan.
