Srinagar: Prof. Saifuddin Soz, former Union Minister on Tuesday said that the entire process of Delimitation in Jammu and Kashmir smacks of a conspiracy hatched by the RSS to change the demography of the State and ultimately install a Hindu Chief Minister in Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that RSS seems to have succeeded in making the J-K Delimitation Commission propose six additional Assembly seats for Jammu and only one seat for Kashmir.
“This recommendation of the Commission goes against the most crucial criteria for Delimitation that is population and the same attitude shows the Commission itself in extremely poor light,” he said.
Soz said that the census of 2011 shows the population of Kashmir as 69,07,623, Jammu as 53,50,811 and Ladakh as 2,90,492.
“The official website of the Ministry of Home Affairs has now put forth an absolutely erroneous figure of population whereby the population of Kashmir has declined by almost 16 lakhs,” Soz said.
“The Home Ministry website states that the valley houses a total population of 5,35,811 residents, while the Jammu region houses 69,07623 residents followed by Ladakh with 2,90,492 residents.
While the MHA quotes census 2011 as its source, the census 2011 itself tells a different tale.
“It is now clear that not only does the MHA misquote census in terms of the Kashmir valley’s population, but, it also adds up the population of the state, erroneously,” he said.
Soz said the population of Jammu is incorrectly quoted as 69.07 lakhs when it is only 53.50 lakhs, according to the census 2011.
“These are RSS games for which it has now tasked MHA to do its biddings in the so-called National Interest.”
He said these Blind-Men of Hindustan do not seem to be taking any notice of the repercussions of its games at the National and International level.
“The general run of people of Kashmir wants to show respect to the Constitutional relationship between J-K State and the Union of India.”
“The million-dollar question for the right-thinking people of India is that the RSS is already blunting the process of right-thinking on issues.”
Soz said the least that the RSS and the MHA can do at this stage, is to apologize to the Nation for its narrow minded approach to the crucial National Issues. (KNT)
