LS begins discussion on J&K reservation & Reorganisation (Amendment) Bills, 2023

New Delhi, Dec 5 (UNI) The Lok Sabha on Tuesday began discussion on Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2023, and the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill 2023.
Participating in the discussion on the bills, Congress MP Manish Tewari asked the Centre why elections were not held in Kashmir.
“I humbly want to ask the Home Minister when the J & K assembly election will be held?” Tiwari said.
The Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2023 was moved in the lower House today to amend the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Act, 2004. The Act provides for reservation in appointment and admission in professional institutions for the members of the Scheduled Castes, the Scheduled Tribes and other socially and educationally backward classes.
After demand from some Opposition party members for a reply on the Bills, Union Home Minister Shah said he would reply on the bills at length.
Shah replying to some Opposition members during the discussion on bills, said how can a country have two Prime Ministers and two flags? Prime Minister Narendra Modi corrected it. “We have been saying that there should be Ek Pradhan, ek Nishan aur ek vidhan,” the Home Minister said.
Taking a dig at the Centre, AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi opposed both the bills and raised some questions. “The Centre is trying to subvert democracy by nomination,” he alleged.
Raising the issue of Law and Order in Kashmir in the Lower House, Indian National Congress MP Jasbir Singh Gill alleged that Law and Order and economic situations are in a bad shape.
The discussion will continue on Wednesday as the house adjourned for the day to meet again tomorrow.
