After Jammu and Kashmir political parties met the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Delhi earlier this week, the Centre has now invited parties and civil society members from Kargil and Ladakh for talks on July 1.

The party have been invited for talks with the Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy in the first week of July.

After Centre’s invitation to Ladakh political parties, Ladakh MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal had said in a tweet that the Gupkar alliance did not have the right or authority to speak on behalf of the people of Ladakh. His comments linked to the PM Modi’s all party meet with Jammu and Kashmir leaders.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah had earlier said in a tweet that the Central government is committed to ensure all round development of Jammu and Kashmir. He said the future of Jammu and Kashmir was discussed and the delimitation exercise and peaceful elections are important milestones in restoring statehood as promised in Parliament.

PM Modi’s meeting with 14 Jammu and Kashmir leaders was the maiden political exercise between the Centre and mainstream Jammu and Kashmir politicians after the abrogation of Article 370 and the division of the state into two union territories in August 2019.

On August 5, 2019, the central government withdrew Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under the Article 370 and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir with a legislative assembly and Ladakh without one. The move led to the imposition of restrictions on several political leaders and activists in the Kashmir Valley. Gradually, authorities lifted the curbs and released politicians under detention.

Following their meetings with BJP President JP Nadda and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the ten MPs tendered their resignations. They went to the speaker’s office with the party president in tow, where nine MPs tendered their resignation. Kirori Lal Meena, the 10th MP, tendered his resignation to the chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

In Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh, state elections were won by 12 MPs, according to a BJP leader.

The ten MPs who have resigned are: Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Diya Kumari, Kirori Lal Meena (a member of the Rajya Sabha); Arun Sao and Gomti Sai from Chhattisgarh; and Narendra Singh Tomar, Prahlad Patel, Rakesh Singh, Uday Pratap Singh, and Riti Pathak from Madhya Pradesh.

Baba Balaknath, a Lok Sabha MP from Rajasthan, and Renuka Singh, a Chhattisgarh native who was elected as the union minister of state for tribal affairs, have not yet tendered their resignations.

The responsibility for agriculture is held by Narendra Singh Tomar, while the state minister for food processing and Jal Shakti is Prahlad Patel.

The fourth minister the BJP fielded in the state elections, Faggan Singh Kulaste, is the minister of state for steel and rural development, however he was unable to win the assembly seat.

These Members of Parliament are expected to tender their resignations, and there have been rumours of a potential reorganisation within the Union Council of Ministers.
