Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has said that all the political parties here should cooperate with the delimitation commission so that the assembly elections are held as early as possible.
Manoj Sinha on Monday while reacting to the recent demands for early assembly elections by different political parties said that those who are demanding early assembly elections in the region must cooperate with the Delimitation Commission to complete the exercise at the earliest.
“Those demanding early Assembly polls in J-K must help and cooperate with the Delimitation Commission so that the process is completed and Assembly polls are held,” Manoj Sinha was quoted by news agencies.
He said that if the political parties will not cooperate with the commission, it will delay the work of this commission and that means the assembly elections would also be delayed in Jammu and Kashmir.
“Once the Delimitation exercise ends in J-K, the Election Commission of India will assess the situation and accordingly announce the poll dates,” Sinha said.
While taking questions from the media about the slide in the situation in Kashmir valley especially in Srinagar city, he said that police and security agencies will not allow such incidents to happen and said that only two incidents have taken place and in one of such attacks all the accused have been arrested.
