    Bill seeks to reserve seats for Gilgit, PoK residents


    The Bill seeks to reserve five seats in the Lok Sabha and one in the Rajya Sabha for the residents of Gilgit and PoK.


    By: Express News Service | New Delhi | Updated: March 6, 2017 4:11 am

    In a bid to give momentum to the demand for creating political space for the people of Gilgit-Baltistan in legislative institutions, a BJP MP has moved a Bill seeking to reserve seats in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha for the people of Gilgit and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.

    The Bill moved by BJP MP Nishikant Dubey has been listed to be introduced in the second part of Budget Session beginning March 9. The Bill seeks to reserve five seats in the Lok Sabha and one in the Rajya Sabha for the residents of Gilgit and PoK.

    “When we say Kashmir is an integral part of India and Gilgit and PoK are part of Kashmir, there need to be members representing these regions in Parliament too,” Dubey told The Indian Express.

    “It is surprising that Parliament does not take into account this territory while the state Assembly has 24 seats reserved for them in Jammu and Kashmir,” Dubey, MP from Godda, Jharkhand, said.


    He said he had tried to bring in the Bill as a private members Bill in 2013, 2014 and 2015, but it did not get the approval of the committee on private members Bill. “Now it has been approved and it is listed for the upcoming session. I will be able to introduce it in the Lok Sabha,” he said.

    Such a big news and it was missed by all.. and as usual our MS media neglected it

    Imagine if the bill gets passed by the parliament... This will be the biggest geo political strategic push by India ...

    Sorry to be a spoiler , but apart from bolstering our claims to re unification of PoK with J&K , it doesn't amount to much .

    It's like China laying claim to Tawang.Possesion is 9/10's of the law.

    Yes, we should do it. At the very least it will be an epic troll on Pak. :biggthumpup:

    Though a great move but 5 seats in LS and 1 in RS is not right. The constituencies are distributed so that the population ratio remain equal in all constituencies within the state and in over all india. Though currently 1971 census is taken into account for this. 5 seats for gilgit baltistan needs huge population, which isn't there.
    For comparison delhi has 7 seats, UP 80 and bihar 40 seats in lok sabha.
