Declare Statehood to Jammu region: DPP

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, July 30: Duggar Pradesh Party (DPP) has strongly reiterated its demand of Statehood status to Jammu region.
President of the Party, Uday Chand said that as the three regions of the State — Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are culturally, linguistically, geographically and historically altogether different from each other, so we have a strong case to demand separate Statehood status for Jammu region.
“Before Amritsar treaty, the rulers of the three regions were altogether but in past 66 years, the people of Jammu and Ladakh have been heavily discriminated politically as well as economically and exploited in all walks of life with the help of few henchmen from Jammu and Ladakh, he said and added this discrimination is still going on.
“When India was declared independent, there were only 16-17 bigger states and today we have near 30 states. With the formation of small states, the Country has good and healthy experience of all-round progress and equal opportunity to all”, Chand said, adding by demanding Statehood to Jammu region they are not demanding separation from India but want to strengthen India.
