Delimitation of J&K Assembly seats will end partisanship that favours Kashmir, turned state into 'rotten borough' of Valley

One word 'delimitation' that popped up on Tuesday evening created such a commotion in Jammu and Kashmir that there was little else discussed on Eid (5 June) all over the state. In fact, across the country, it was debated in television studios, in newspapers and on social media platforms. All around Kashmir, there was resentment and even Omar Abdullh and Mehbooba Mufti spoke against it on Twitter. They alleged that it was an attempt to dis-empower Kashmir.
In sharp contrast, most people in the Jammu region said that finally they could hope for justice after a fresh delimitation. Undaunted by 40 plus degree Celsius heat, people were out on the streets for heated discussions about the possibility of delimitation de novo. Their expectations were based on the hopes that in a fresh delimitation, the number of seats in the Jammu region could go up, may be by 10 to 15. This, in turn, could end the hegemony of the Kashmir region in the political sphere, and have a cascading effect, making way for more equitable distribution of powers among regions and sub-regions.
