Jammu: The Panun Kashmir, an organisation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits, on Sunday objected to the conduct of the delimitation exercise in Jammu and Kashmir on the basis of 2011 Census.

Its chairman 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 its Foundation Day, Panun Kashmir reiterated the demand for a separate Union Territory for the community.
