Assembly elections in J&K will likely be held only in 2023. But winning them will be the test for all parties.
If the writing down of Article 370 that bestowed special status on Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) was greeted with anger, political parties in the region are incandescent at the Union government’s announcement that anyone ordinarily living in J&K can now enrol as a voter there.
National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah has called an all-party meeting on Monday to address the issue and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the move is an extension of the “tactical rigging process” that started with the “unconstitutional and illegal delimitation process” in J&K.
