Delimitation: What Does It Mean For Jammu & Kashmir? All You Need To Know

INDIA Team Latestly|

PM Modi held a meeting with 14 top political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir on June 24. This was the first meeting since the government scrapped the special status granted to Jammu & Kashmir & downgraded it into two union territories. The big focus of the meeting was delimitation or redrawing of constituencies. PM Modi urged the leaders to participate in the delimitation process or the redrawing of boundaries of a Lok Sabha or assembly seat. However, former J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, after the meeting, protested the centre's moves to redraw constituencies in J&K saying it was not needed. Abdullah was among scores of politicians detained as the Centre on August 5 announced the abrogation of Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. After the state was turned into two Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, the government said Jammu and Kashmir would have an elected legislature and elections would be held soon after delimitation. Elections are due in Jammu and Kashmir since 2018, when the BJP withdrew support from the then Mehbooba Mufti-led government. Watch the video to know what is delimitation and what does it mean for Jammu & Kashmir.
