Panun Kashmir objects to delimitation based on 2011 census, says gains of Article 370 abrogation will be lost

Right-wing group, Panun Kashmir, on Sunday objected to the conduct of the delimitation exercise in Jammu and Kashmir on the basis of the 2011 Census.

Ajay Chrungoo, the chairman of the displaced group of Kashmiri Pandits, claimed that the exercise based on the 2011 data will negate the social and political gains made since the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 and its bifurcation into union territories in August 2019.

The Delimitation Commission, tasked with redrawing assembly constituencies and carving out new ones in the Union Territory, had earlier said that the exercise would be done according to the Census of 2011.

On the Foundation Day of Panun Kashmir, Chrungoo reiterated its demand for a separate Union Territory for the community.
