Delimitation panel do injustice with people of J&K, alleges Altaf Bukhari
HT NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 08: Apni Party president, Syed Altaf Bukhari Wednesday said the Delimitation Commission has done injustice with the people of Jammu and Kashmir and that the draft proposed by the panel is aimed to disempower them.
Addressing a news conference on the occasion of the party's foundation day, Bukhari said the delimitation exercises aimed to empower the people is been for the last 72 days, but the exercise is seemingly aimed to disempower people.
He said the panel didn’t even cover the ground in Jammu and Kashmir, saying just two days were not enough to come up with facts and make a report. “I believe that the panel has not even covered the ground. The commission should have spent at least 2-3 days in one district to talk to the people on the ground,” he said.
About the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), Bukhari said they are against the conglomerate and its blatant lies. “PAGD is misleading people that Article 370 and Statehood will be restored by them, but the fact is that even the assembly can’t restore the statehood and special status,” he said, adding that the conglomerate is trying to show unity by meeting after every three-four months, but the time will come when they will expose each other very badly.
He said the people of Jammu and Kashmir were robbed of their identity on August 05, 2019, nd the party has already termed the day as black day. “Apni Party has never made any promises with the people, which are impossible. We understand the pain of a common man as we have not come from the elite political class, but have come from the common masses,” he said.
Bukhari also demanded early elections in Jammu and Kashmir, saying the grievances of people are piled up and only the elected government can bring respite to the people from the present situation.
