Communist Party of India (M) senior leader and People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) spokesperson MY Tarigami on Monday said that they have already challenged the delimitation process which came into being from reorganization act before the Supreme Court of India.
Tarigami categorically denied any involvement of the National Conference and associate members of the BJP, saying that they have no power more than raising objections within the jurisdiction of being the associate members as that right belongs only to the permanent members of the Commission.
Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami said that after the illegal division of Jammu and Kashmir into two parts on August 5, 2019, the CPIM, National Conference, Sajjad Gani Lone, Dr. Shah Faisal and Prof. Radha Kumar have filed several petitions against the Jammu and Kashmir Reconstruction Act which are being heard there.
In another petition, the Supreme Court has been approached to challenge the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act, under which the delimitation process has been initiated and other decisions are being taken.
“We had apprised the court that despite the matter being sub-judice, the Government of India was taking irreversible steps which were harmful for the interests of people of J&K and that the subsequent Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act be declared “unconstitutional, void and inoperative,” Tarigami said.
