A massive protest rally was taken out in Akhnoor area of Jammu by elected members of Panchayati Raj Institutions and leaders of social and political organizations against the draft report of Delimitation Commission.
As per the draft report, Maira Mandrian and Chowki Choura tehsils will be the part of Khour Assembly constituency.
Around three hundred people from both tehsils led by their 18 Sarpanchs and more than 100 Panchs gathered near the new bridge Akhnoor where they blocked the Jammu-Poonch highway and disrupted the vehicular traffic for around two hours. The people were shouting slogans against the Delimitation Commission.
Speaking on the occasion, BDC Member Rahul Dev Sharma flayed the draft report while saying that the same was compiled by the Delimitation Commission without knowing the ground situation.—KMS
