SRINAGAR: The lieutenant governor of J&K, Manoj Sinha, on Tuesday said dates for polls in the UT will be fixed by the Election Commission of India, as it is their prerogative to do so.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function at the SKICC here, Sinha said the government of India is committed to holding assembly elections in the J&K Union territory, as soon as the Delimitation Commission (DC) completes its exercise.
“In his speech on August 15, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the Delimitation Commission is working on a fast-track basis. Apart from that, Union home minister Amit Shah has already said in Parliament that statehood will be granted to J&K at an appropriate time,” Sinha said.
Sinha said the number of assembly seats in the UT will go up from 87 to 94.
Replying to a question, Sinha said stone pelting is now a thing of the past, while tourism has improved vastly over earlier times.
