PM Narendra Modi, in a three-hour meeting with top political headsof  Jammu and Kashmir today, talked about eliminating “Dilli ki Doori just as Dil Ki Doori.” The PM guaranteed his obligation to reestablishing statehood, asserted the pioneers. Fourteen standard Jammu and Kashmir pioneers from eight ideological groups, including four Chief Ministers, gone to the gathering pointed toward making a plan the political interaction in the district after it lost its exceptional status under Article 370 of the Constitution in 2019 and was minimized from a state to two Union Territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

PM Modi, say sources, said statehood would be restored “at an appropriate time” but urged the parties to get on board with delimitation or the redrawing of assembly constituencies to enable elections. Elections can happen soon after delimitation, it was said, and “most participants expressed willingness for it”, said sources.

“The main focus of the meeting was to strengthen the democratic process. PM said that we are fully committed to the democratic process in J&K. He stressed that the holding assembly elections just like the successful conduct of District Development Council elections is a priority,” government sources said.

Omar Abdullah told reporters that “almost all leaders” were unhappy with delimitation only in Jammu and Kashmir. “In other states, delimitation will be taken up in 2026, why has  Jammu and Kashmir been singled out? We told the PM delimitation is not needed,” he said, adding that “trust has broken between the Centre and Kashmir”.

Previous Chief Ministers Farooq Abdullah and his child Omar Abdullah of the National Conference met with PM Modi keep going on August 1, 2019. They were staggered when after three days on August 4, they were confined and hours after the fact, the revocation of Article 370 was declared in parliament.

The seven-party Gupkar coalition drove by Mr Abdullah and previous Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti squeezed for rebuilding of full statehood and uncommon status. “We will battle for 370, be it months or years. We didn’t get this (exceptional status) from Pakistan, however from India, Nehru. There can be no trade off on this,” Ms Mufti said after the gathering.

The Prime Minister, said sources, “persistently heard ideas and contributions from all members” and communicated joy that all members shared their straight to the point and legit sees. “It’s anything but an open conversation which spun around building a superior future for Kashmir,” they said.

This was the Center’s first significant effort since August 2019 towards political pioneers who have been seriously condemning of the Article 370 choice. A considerable lot of the pioneers going to the gathering had been confined as a component of safety efforts to forestall any fights over the major developments.

At the gathering, it was additionally concluded that the Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha would set up a board to audit instances of political detainees.
