IIOJK delimitation panel’s head gets rewarded, selected as new PCI chief


Former judge of the Indian Supreme Court, Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai, a former judge of the Supreme Court, have been appointed the Press Council of India (PCI) chairperson.

Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government has rewarded Justice Ranjana Desai for carrying out the recently concluded delimitation process in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir as per the wishes and directions of the rightwing Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

The delimitation panel headed by Justice Desai had recommended increase of six seats for Hindu-dominated Jammu region and one for the Kashmir Valley for the so-called Assembly. This unjust increase in the Assembly seats has paved the way for the BJP and RSS to install a Hindu chief minister in the elections to be held in IIOJK in future.

A committee comprising Indian Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and PCI member Prakash Dubey approved her appointment as the PCI chairperson at a meeting held on Tuesday, Indian media quoting sources reported. Justice Desai, 72, is a former judge of the Bombay High Court.—INP
