Srinagar : Manoj Sinha, the lieutenant governor of Jammu and Kashmir, took a strong stand on Thursday against individuals disseminating false information on the impending assembly elections in the Union Territory. According to him, the administration is ready to hold the polls whenever the Election Commission of India (ECI) gives the go-ahead.
Speaking at an Amar Ujala-hosted seminar, Sinha clearly refuted rumors and conjecture regarding the polls, asserting that the ECI is the only body with the power to determine the election calendar. He underlined that in order to guarantee a seamless and equitable election process, the administration has been collaborating closely with the ECI.
Political hyperbole and baseless accusations from some leaders who have questioned the administration’s resolve to holding elections on schedule have surrounded Sinha’s remarks. He refuted these claims by emphasising the administration’s steadfast commitment to protecting democratic values and guaranteeing that every eligible voter casts a ballot.
“All information regarding arrangements that the ECI requested from Jammu and Kashmir has been provided to them. The Jammu and Kashmir administration is prepared to hold polls, as soon as the ECI informs us, and that is what I want to convey from this platform,” Sinha declared.
He also reaffirmed his intention to stay in Jammu & Kashmir until the assembly elections are successfully concluded. “I would leave Jammu and Kashmir only after successfully conducting the assembly polls,” he said.
Sinha’s steadfast position on holding assembly elections highlights the administration’s commitment to bolstering democratic procedures in Jammu & Kashmir. His message of openness and responsibility helps the electorate feel confident and erase worries.
The preemptive actions taken by the administration, such as updating the electoral rolls, setting up polling places, and assigning security guards, demonstrate their readiness for the elections. These actions show a dedication to guaranteeing a fair and impartial election process.
The leadership of Sinha has played a crucial role in creating an atmosphere that is favourable for the holding of the assembly elections. His focus on wide participation and upholding democratic principles has made the electoral process more legitimate.
Voters may be certain that their rights to vote and their voices will be heard while the Jammu and Kashmir administration awaits the ECI’s final judgement regarding the election schedule. With Sinha’s unflinching commitment to holding assembly polls, Jammu and Kashmir is entering a new phase of democratic involvement.
Ultimately, the Union Territory’s democracy appears to have a bright future thanks to Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha’s unflinching commitment to holding assembly votes in Jammu and Kashmir and his firm stance against disinformation. The electorate now has more confidence thanks to his leadership and the administration’s aggressive actions, which means their views will be heard in the next polls.
