Dogra Sadar Sabha for permanent Darbar in Jammu, Srinagar

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Apr 11: The core group of Dogra Sadar Sabha held a teleconferencing to review the various recent happenings in the J&K Union Territory.
The tele-discussions were convened by DSS President & former Minister Th Gulchain Singh Charak, who welcomed the UT Government’s decision to keep both the Secretariats operative by the staff on ‘where they are basis’ and called it a very positive historical decision forced by nature.
“After its successful trial, this system should be adopted as a permanent measure to save the wasteful recurring annual expenditure and Government be available to people where the governance is needed,” he said and added that all allocations of financial, educational, jobs and development opportunities must be made separately to each region. “This will be a more accessible system for populations on both sides of Peer Panchal and shall grossly improve functional efficiency, attendance, thereby all round public satisfaction levels,” said Charak.
The DSS opined that the Government decision to roll back the job policy and keep all jobs in UT for local youth, was essential, since the youth in J&K have immensely suffered in the academics due to insurgency in the Valley and frequent closure of institutes in border regions of Jammu division due to Pakistan’s misadventures.
“First and foremost for the UT transformation comes delimitation with an eye on fair democratic balance of power between Jammu and Kashmir regions. Inclusion of West Pakistan refugees, Valmikis, rotation of SC/ST seats, revival of PoJK seats in favour of PoJK migrants; for now and to include PoJK in due course of times; which is factually part of Jammu region and not “Kashmir” as misconstrued. The migrant nomad’s population has to be judiciously placed in electoral constituencies, besides those permanently settled in Jammu region over the years. No election should be held without proper delimitation and fair population area based share of power to both regions,” said Charak and also pointed out that the 2011 census figures are outdated and inaccurate.
Therefore, he added, the population related decisions should be kept open ended with proviso of accommodating inputs of 2021 census of the UTs, process for which may be hastened and a check like National Register of Citizens applied in Assam/ Bengal is required to weed out foreign settlers.
