Singh said that nowadays any leader gets up and talks on delimitation in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that there will be delimitation and the leaders who are worrying more about it should be suggested that their constituency should not be reserved. Jitendra Singh further said that the Prime Minister is constantly repeating that the development of North Eastern states of India should be done on the same lines as in Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that before 2014, the North Eastern states used to be in the news for some other reason. From here, there were reports of rebellion, blockade, violence, corruption and break on development.
