Sikh organisation in IIOJK criticises Delimitation Commission



In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a Sikh organisation in Kashmir on Thursday criticised the Delimitation Commission for not providing any political representation to the community by way of reservation of assembly seats.

The All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee (APSCC) Chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina talking to reporters in Srinagar said, “The delimitation commission has two important jobs — to give representation based on geography and population. It is mandatory and they cannot ignore that.”

“But, we have not been given any representation. The forthcoming (assembly) elections will be meaningless if the Sikh community is not given any political representation,” he said.

He also appealed to the Sikhs living in the different parts of the world to raise their voice against “this injustice and maltreatment.”—KMS
