JAMMU, Feb 7: Panthers Party today held a protest against the draft report alleging that the BJP-led central government was dividing people on communal lines.
J&K Panthers Party chief, Harsh Dev Singh, while addressing his party workers in front of the election office here, said, “We reject the draft report of the delimitation commission. The delimitation seems to have been formulated in the office of BJP. It is far from reality”.
Claiming that people have been divided on the basis of the communal lines and there was an attempt to carry forward Owen Dixon Plan of 1951, he said, “Rajouri and Poonch districts of Jammu region have been joined with Anantnag district of South Kashmir and Jammu region has been divided.” Dixon, the UN Representative who came to the subcontinent pursuant to the Security Council’s 1950 resolution on the Kashmir dispute, had assigned Ladakh to India, the Northern Areas and Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (POK) to Pakistan, split Jammu between the two, and envisaged a plebiscite in the Kashmir Valley.
The Delimitation Commission, in its draft report, has proposed an overhaul of assembly and Lok Sabha constituencies in Jammu and Kashmir triggering massive protests from all political parties in the Union territory.
Former chief minister Farooq Abdullah, who heads the National Conference, had on Saturday slammed the draft report, saying it “defies any and all logic” and no political, social and administrative reason can justify the recommendations.
