Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, who is on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, on Friday indicated that assembly elections could be held in the Union Territory by the end of this year.

Recently, a delimitation exercise was accomplished after the abrogation of Article 370 from the then state of Jammu and Kashmir. As per the order, out of the 90 Assembly Constituencies (ACs) in the Jammu and Kashmir, 43 will be part of the Jammu region and 47 for the Kashmir region.

Addressing an event here, Singh said: "Recently, the delimitation exercise concluded in J-K. Now, Jammu will have 43 seats and Kashmir will have 47 seats in Vidhan Sabha. There is a strong possibility that the electoral process will commence by the end of this year in J-K."
