What Does The Data Say:The Delimitation of Jammu and Kashmir PART 1 The Difficult Seventy-five Years

“The Jammu and Kashmir delimitation report was released to the public on March 14, 2022. One week was given to the public to comment on the report.

Was it necessary at this juncture to go in for redrawing the constituency boundaries of the state?

Everyone has an opinion on Jammu and Kashmir. Just discussing the delimitation in isolation will not add any more value other than what is already available through media channels. To understand why delimitation became essential one has to have some knowledge about the turbulent past of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

This episode sets the political backdrop against which the delimitation was carried out.

Jammu and Kashmir is not just one more state of India. It sets itself apart from others because leaders in this state were a confused lot. They wanted to rule the state and at the same time oppose the Indian Union. People of the state suffered for seventy-five years and lost out from the rest of the country.

I fast forward the political history of the state from 1947 to 2022. Thank you for watching. Your comments are always welcome.
