22

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, United Peace Movement, an amalgam of socio-political organizations, held a sit-in protest in Jammu, today, against the discriminatory draft pro-posals of delimitation of assembly constituencies in the territory by the Delimitation Commission.

The participants of the sit-in led by Himmat Singh said concerned citizens are feeling that the Delimitation Commission has worked on the behest of IIOJK unit of BJP and the Indian government.

Speaking on the occasion, Didar Singh, Kulwant Singh, Advocate Sheikh Abdul Rehman, Desh Bandhu, R C Makhnotra, Varinder Singh Sonu, Amrik Singh Roshan, Ram Singh Chouhan, Narinder Khajuria, Balkar Singh, Kali Dass, Narinder Singh Khalsa and I D Khajuria slammed the draft and the proposal of annulling of Suchet-garh and undesirable method of reservation of all border constituencies.

The speakers said the Indian government is try-ing to divide people on communal and regional lines which the people of territory will not allow to hap-pen.

The peace activists said that instead of creating employment avenues and resolving long pending genuine demands of all daily wagers of various departments and unemployed youth, the authorities were snatching away the existing opportunities and pushing the people of IIOJK into the dark tunnel.—KMS
