According to a government decision, J&K designated 20 nodal officers, one in each region, to assist the Delimitation Commission with reorganising new constituencies in the following 9 months.
The panel, headed by former Supreme Court judge Ranjana Prakash Desai, was established in March 2020 to redesign the Lok Sabha and legislative seats of Jammu and Kashmir, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, and Nagaland. There are approximately nine months remaining for the commission to conclude the exercise. First-ever in Jammu and Kashmir, it would carve out seats for SCs and STs.
“The nodal officers shall be responsible for assisting deputy Commissioners in providing timely information as may be sought by the Commission. Receiving representations from stakeholders for submission to the Commission and any other work as may be assigned by the Commission,” reads the order issued by Manoj Kumar Dwivedi, commissioner secretary to the UT government.
With the exception of the PDP and the ANC, all mainstream political parties have convened with the committee and presented memorandums of ideas and requests about the separation process in Jammu and Kashmir.
Majority of parties have proposed that population be the primary criterion for constituency rearrangement, the CPI(M) has asked that the 2011 census results be used as the baseline.
