NEW DELHI: The Boundary Commission will visit Srinagar and Jammu on April 4-5 to hear from members of the public and civil society groups who have submitted suggestions and objections to its draft boundary proposal for the territory of The union.
Around 300 representations were received by the panel – headed by retired Supreme Court Justice Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai and having Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra and the head of the J&K State Elections Commission as ex-officio members – between March 14, when he placed his boundary proposal in the public domain, and March 21, the deadline for submitting objections and suggestions.
The public hearings – likely to be held at district level for Jammu region in Jammu and for Kashmir region in Srinagar – will give a chance to people and groups who have filed objections and suggestions on the proposed reconfiguration of the assembly and parliamentary constituencies to J&K present their case before the boundary committee.
Sources said most of the representations received by the boundary commission were from Jammu (60), Anantnag (40) and Kupwara (40). Those of Anantnag mainly concern objections to the proposal to redesign the Anantnag parliamentary constituency to include areas of the Jammu and Kashmir region and rename it Anantnag-Rajouri. More than 40 representations request a change in the nomenclature of the constituencies.
