Preparing to hold Jammu & Kashmir elections by end of 2019, says Amit Shah

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that the Centre has started preparations and assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir may be held by the end of this year.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Speaking at the Lok Sabha, Amit Shah said, “In the view of Ramzan and Amarnath Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir, preparations are underway to hold assembly elections by the end of this year.”

Amit Shah also proposed that the President’s Rule should be extended in Jammu and Kashmir for another six months.

Elections in Jammu and Kashmir have been pending for several months after the PDP-BJP coalition government fell through in June last year.

BJP pulled out of the coalition that was led by PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and Governor’s Rule was immediately imposed in the state.

The Jammu and Kashmir Assembly was dissolved in November.

The home minister also moved the J&K Reservation Bill in Lok Sabha. Shah said, “This bill is not to please anyone but for those living near the International Border.” (India Today)
