Elections in J&K after delimitation, says BJP’s Nadda

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s working president, J P Nadda, on Sunday said that elections in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) will be held only after the delimitation of seats.

“Jammu and Kashmir has been given the status of a Union Territory but it will also have a legislature. Elections will be held. But before that there will be delimitation of constituencies,’’ he said in Thane.

The Centre on August 5 abrogated Constitution’s Article 370 that gave J&K a measure of autonomy and split it into two Union territories.

The Election Commission last month held an internal meeting on the issue of delimitation to be carried out in Jammu and Kashmir after Parliament passed the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisational Bill.
