Secret thing: Two years ago, when Home Minister Amit Shah announced the removal of Article 370 and 35 (A) from Jammu and Kashmir on the floor of Parliament, it was an impossible dream come true for crores of Indians. Kashmir is an integral part of India, this was the most powerful step taken on the ground to realize this national resolve. But some important steps were yet to be taken regarding Mission Kashmir, like the poem ‘Ahuti Baaki Yagya incomplete’ by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the former PM and BJP’s Shlaka Purush. So the matter of Raj is now about the last sacrifice of this Kashmir Yagya, whose legislation has now been prepared. PM Modi’s attempt to start the political process by sending Jammu and Kashmir’s Governor Manoj Sinha is now on the ground and after talks with all the parties in Jammu and Kashmir, not only has the government moved in that direction, but Through the new formula of delimitation, the process of establishing a healthy democracy by eliminating the imbalance of the state has also been written.
After the liberation of Jammu and Kashmir from the special status, the kind of hopes that all the intellectuals and political parties were setting, nothing happened. The biggest thing is that the separatists had already been isolated, now they have no name left. Pakistan is constantly facing problems in every international forum. Every plan of his to spread unrest and terror is being defeated at every level, diplomatic and military.
In such a situation, the all-party meeting held at the Prime Minister’s residence on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir is historic. Historical because for the first time after the removal of Article 370 and 35A from Jammu and Kashmir, all the parties are sitting for talks on this issue. Especially the Gupkar gang of Jammu and Kashmir which was not ready to accept this decision of this Modi government in any case. We all heard the statements that came after this meeting. But what was not said or which no one is discussing today, the real secret lies in decoding them.
The biggest thing is that the practice of Hurriyat chanting on the matter stopped and the Gupkar alliance also demanded an electoral process with full statehood. Otherwise, the practice of inviting the Hurriyat to Delhi at government expense and hospitalizing them and coming here and leaving their statements has come to an end. There was no mention of the pro-Pakistan Hurriyat anywhere in this entire meeting or during it. It is clear that due to the bold steps and strong action plan of the Government of India, these pups of Pakistan have been isolated and even non-existent. Although Mehbooba’s love for Pakistan arose in the midst of all this, but the language and attitude were very soft and no one could make a difference. It is also not a small matter that these political parties are talking about full statehood and elections, that means they are showing the urge to come into the mainstream.
This meeting was for confidence building and to take the democratic process forward. Before the elections, the Government of India will conduct the delimitation. The reason is that Ladakh has been separated from here and has become a union territory. At present, a committee headed by a Supreme Court Justice is engaged in delimiting the seats in the state to move Jammu and Kashmir from a Union Territory to a full-fledged state. Here is the secret of today’s secret. That is, the political wounds being fabricated after the 370 surgery have started to heal. Let me tell you the most important and positive thing that has come out in this whole story.
In fact, by removing 370 and 35A from Jammu and Kashmir, the Modi government at the Center had changed the history of this region and now in the expansion of reforms, the central government is also going to change the electoral geography on the scale of delimitation. The secret is that preparations for elections have been started internally in Jammu and Kashmir and now when the next elections will be held, with new delimitation, with new balance and with new thinking.
Amidst the ongoing election preparations in Jammu and Kashmir, you must first understand the present delimitation and geography. The situation at present is that the area in Jammu region is large, but the population is less. If you understand from the figures, there is 44 percent population in 62 percent area. At the same time, there is 39 percent area in Kashmir, but 53 percent of the population. That is why, on the basis of population, 46 assembly seats were with the Kashmir division and 37 seats with the Jammu division. In this area with a total of 73 assembly seats, 7 seats of Scheduled Tribes are being increased first. There is a constant debate going on about where they will join in Jammu or Kashmir. However, when political parties are engaged in heating up this controversy, the commission has made a new formula to balance it, so that there is no sense of injustice to any division.
It is important to know that population alone is not the basis in the formation of seats in the delimitation. Scientifically, three facts are taken into account. First population, second area and third administrative convenience. So far, the division of Jammu and Kashmir division is on a horizontal basis, that is, the crown seen in the map of India, the lower part of it, Jammu and Kashmir above. The delimitation of seats was also on this basis.
Now it is a matter of secret that the method and delimitation on which elections were being held till now was horizontal delimitation but now this picture is going to be reversed. Meaning now there will be vertical or perpendicular delimitation. To understand it in easy language, till now the division of seats was done by cutting left to right or right to left. Now seats will be divided in its place from top to bottom or bottom to top i.e. with a vertical line.
It is a matter of Raj that the delimitation of this area, which is situated in the lap of the Himalayas on the same lines as Nepal, will now be a vertical line i.e. from north to south. Till now it used to be on the basis of east-west i.e. lying line. In this way, the clear division of Jammu and Kashmir division, which was seen, will not remain. The balance of votes will also be more logical and inclusive. Meaning that only seven seats will not increase in this delimitation, in which the representation of Scheduled Tribes will increase. This process will also pave the way to improve social balance.
That is, the overall preparation is that whatever mistakes have been made at the historical, geographical and social level, administratively and politically, they should be rectified at once so that the problem is eradicated from the root. Along with the preparations for the delimitation and elections, a plan for the rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits is also being prepared. That is, whatever changes are being made on the head of the country, they will give positive far-reaching results along with the development of Jammu and Kashmir and most importantly it will be seen that after changing the nature of the delimitation, how much will be the political situation in Jammu and Kashmir. change.
