Leaders Online Desk: For the past few days, there were discussions that the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir will also be held along with the Lok Sabha elections. However, after the Lok Sabha election dates were announced today, Chief Election Commissioner Rajeev Rajeev Kumar informed that these elections will be held after the Lok Sabha. While giving this information, he explained in detail why the Legislative Assembly of Jammu and Kashmir will be held separately. Jammu and Kashmir Election

The Election Commission has announced the schedule of assembly elections in four states along with the Lok Sabha elections on Saturday (16th). Assembly elections are being held in Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. But the commission announced that the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be held after the Lok Sabha. Kumar said the main reason for not holding both the elections simultaneously was lack of adequate security forces. Jammu and Kashmir Election

Responding to a question, Kumar said that all the political parties had requested to hold both the elections simultaneously in the union territory, but all the administrative bodies had said that it was not possible. Lok Sabha elections are going to be held across the country. At such a time, it is important to have a smooth security system in every state. Keeping a watchful eye on every constituency is risky. In such a situation, Kumar said that many problems are likely to arise in front of the security system to hold the Legislative Assembly in Jammu.

He further said that the number of candidates in Jammu and Kashmir Assembly will be very high. There will not be enough security forces available during the Lok Sabha elections to provide security to such a large number of candidates. Even if 10-12 candidates contest for each of the 90 assembly seats, there will be around 1,000 candidates. Security would require 1,000 companies of about 450-500 soldiers.

Security forces will be available after the Lok Sabha immediately after which the assembly elections will be held in Jammu and Kashmir. The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act provides for 107 Assembly seats, of which 24 are reserved for PoK. Later the number of constituencies was increased to 114 including 24 constituencies in PoK.
