JAMMU, Aug 13: The OBC Unit of Pradesh Congress has claimed that abrogation of Article 370 is not in favour of the people from OBC community.
Talking to media-persons here today, Suresh Dogra (adv) chairman of the Other Backward Classes (OBC) Department of Pradesh Congress Committee alleged that the members of the OBC community have been duped by the BJP regime.
Dogra said, “ The conversion of State into Union Territory and abrogation of Article 370 and 35-A” is a complete violation of the Constitution and it is a tactful and also a big fraud and deception with the OBC population of the State. As per the Jammu and Kashmir Re-organization Bill 2019, the Modi led Union Govt has betrayed the innocent OBC population of the J&K, by not implementing Mandal Commission Report in the J&K, which is also a verdict of Supreme Court of India, in 1992.
He said the Home Minister of India Amit Shah on August 5, 2019, while addressing in Rajya Sabha said by the extension of Union Territory in the J&K, the 52 % OBC population of Jammu and Kashmir would get maximum benefit. It stood a fake statement and the rules framed by Central Govt are different and against OBC population of the J&K.
He alleged that Speaker J&K Assembly Nirmal Singh and Member Parliament of BJP Jugal Kishore Sharma are spreading fake news among innocent OBC people. It is mentioned in Para 7 of page No. 44 of the Bill, which clearly depicts the implementation of J&K, Reservation Act 2004 and page No.52, Serial No. 21, also showing the implementation of the J&K State Commission for Backward Classes Act 1997, despite of National Commission for OBC.
Dogra warns the BJP not to play with the fate of OBC people of J&K who are already a under privileged class, by not implementing Mandal Commission Report which guarantees 27% Reservation.
Parshotam Lal Mehra vice chairman and Vijay Kumar Verma, general secretary also accompanied Dogra.
