JAMMU: Congress has questioned BJP, if holding DDC elections, as a sort of experiment, at this juncture of COVID situation, was more important than the lives of people, then why not assembly elections to restore people’s government at the earliest. BJP government put the lives of common man and all political workers, on greater risks by holding these elections, during ongoing COVID crisis, because it wanted to test it’s own waters besides the participation of people in democracy, post disbanding of the state and it’s special position.It also wanted to engage the people and political class, putting the lives of people to great risks, said JKPCC chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma.Welcoming people’s faith in the democracy, despite being highly critical of certain arbitrary and unilateral decisions of the BJP government, he said now there is no justification in delaying assembly elections, any further and people should be given liberty to elect their own government. The centre government must fulfill its commitment made on the floor of parliament and restore statehood with full powers, immediately with constitutional safeguards for land and jobs to the local youth. The left out delimitation exercise should be completed in the shortest possible time, with utmost transparency and fairness, to pave way for early holding of assembly elections, as people have reposed their faith in the ballot, despite severe reservations, over certain unilateral decisions regarding the disbanding and downgrading of the state and extinguishing all protections to land and jobs etc, available to several other states. The people have right to seek their genuine rights in a democratic manner in a vibrant democracy, which should be allowed but denying a democratically elected government to the people, for long, is totally wrong, especially when people have shown their faith in the democracy in such a situation. Although the opposition candidates and established parties contested these elections against heavy odds and in the absence of any level playing field, even the entire exercise of delimitation and reservation of seats had been done at the back of the opposition political parties, much to the advantage of the ruling party.Still the opposition political parties and others overwhelmingly participated to revive the political process, as people are fed up with two and half years of bureaucratic regime and wanted their own representatives to solve their problems. In such a scenario, the centre government must come forward to pave way for holding early assembled elections to give people of Jammu and Kashmir an elected Govt.
