AJKPC Seeks Extension of Existing Panchayts till 2026

AJKPC Seeks Extension of Existing Panchayts for two years. Anil Sharma, President All Jammu and Kashmir Panchayat Conference(AJKPC) along with other senior functionaries of the organization today held a press conference wherein while addressing the media persons Sharma urged the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and Union govenemnt to extend the term of the existing Panchayats for at least two years and hold the elections only in January 2026.

While justifying argument and demand of extending term of Panchayats in J & K, Sharma said that the term of existing Panchayats shall be ending in Nov-Dec 2023 and there are rumors’ and hearsay that the government may dissolve the existing Panchayats even before the due date and this is not acceptable to the Panchayat members and they would oppose it.

He said, due to Covid Pandemic, for two years between year 2020 and 2021 and prior to that after the abrogation of Article 370 and 35_A from Jammu and Kashmir in year August 2019, the entire Jammu and Kashmir remained inattentive and distracted for at least 6 months; for a total period of 30 months the existing Panchayats members could not concentrate on developmental works therefore it is imperative justified that the term of existing Panchayats be extended for at least 2 years.

The AJKPC President also informed that under 73rd Amendment of the Constitution of India, all three tiers of the Panchayats should have co terminus and as the term of the district development councils shall end in 2025 therefore there is no logic to end the term of the Panchayats prior to that.

The AJKPC leaders demanded that elections for all the three tiers of the Panchayts should be conducted simultaneously and the all the PRI members are unanimous in this regard.

The media persons were also informed by the AJKPC leaders that soon their organization shall hold another meeting of executive body of the AJKPC and chalk out a new strategy in this regard including submitting memorandum to respective Deputy Commissioners at district level and Divisional Commissioners of Kashmir and Jammu and also to meet senior leaders of different political parties and Parliamentarians in new Delhi.
