  • NC to form committee to decide participation in Delimitation Commission process Srinagar, May 30 (KNS): With National Conference (NC) MPs staying away from the delimitation exercise and boycotting the Delimitation Commission meetings, the party will now constitute a committee to decide about joining the exercise. Speaking to KNS, Senior NC leader and Member Parliament Justice Hasnain Masoodi said NC had called a meeting of Central Working Committee on Thursday through virtual mode to discuss the option of joining the process of Delimitation Commission. ” Every leader gave his opinion, some spoke in favour and some were averse about becoming part of Delimitation Commission. Then it was unanimously decided that Dr Farooq Abdullah will frame a committee to decide it’s future course of action regarding delimitation Commission and study it’s Pros ans Cons,” he told KNS. Earlier NC was averse to become part of the delimitation exercise which has mandate to redraw parliamentary and Assembly constituencies in J&K. However Masoodi refused to say anything which option had more support.The three NC MPs -Farooq Abdullah, Mohammad Akbar Lone and Justice Hasnain Masoodi never attended any of the meetings of Delimitation Commission. Earlier NC MP Justice Masoodi had informed KNS that the whole exercise of Delimitation Commission is illegal and termed Article 370 revocation and bifurcation of J&K state into two Union Territories as illegal and unconstitutional. Last year in March centre had constituted the Delimitation Commission to redraw Lok Sabha and assembly constituencies of J&K. Later term of the commission was extended in March this year. Meanwhile one of the reasons National Conference had earlier cited for not participating in the process was no veto power and neither their dissent nor disagreement can be recorded.

HENZHEN: China on Sat­­­­u­­­­­r­­day successfully laun­ched an automated cargo resupply spacecraft to rendezvous with an orbiting module, in the second of a series of missions needed to complete its first permanent space station. The Tianzhou-2, or “Heav­enly Vessel” in Chinese, bla­sted off via a Long March-7 Y3 rocket from the Wenchang Space Launch Centre on the southern island of Hainan, the China Manned Space Engineering Office said. Tianzhou-2 is the second of 11 missions needed to complete China’s first self-developed space station around 2022, and follows the launch of the key module Tianhe in late April. The three-module space station will rival the only other station in service, the International Space Station (ISS), which is backed by countries including the United States, Russia and Japan. China was barred from participating in the ISS by the United States. Tianzhou-2 will autonomously dock with Tianhe, which will provide supplies for future astronauts as well as propellant to maintain its orbital altitude. The rocket’s launched was postponed this month due to technical reasons, state media said.
