NEW DELHI: Rajya Sabha will not have any member from Jammu & Kashmir from February 15 when Congress member Ghulam Nabi Azad’s term comes to an end. All four members from the erstwhile state will retire by then. J&K’s representation in the upper House will only resume after elections to the assembly. The erstwhile state of J&K was bifurcated into the Union Territories of J&K and Ladakh in 2019.
The end of J&K representation in the RS will come in the middle of the budget session which starts on January 29.
