People from all walks of life including students, businessmen, advocates, professors, farmers joined the rally enthusiastically and were welcomed by various civil society members and organisations en-route who organised different food stalls and water stalls for the rally. Women in large numbers also participated in this grand rally.
While addressing the large rally, Ch Lal Singh said that the present movement of Dogras under the aegis of Dogra Swabhimaan Sangathan, will turn out to be the last nail in the coffin of Kashmiri hegemony and the Dogra pride which has a rich heritage will be restored at all costs. He urged the people of Jammu Province to be united in order to safeguard their self respect and the culture. He cautioned the Dogras to be vigilant and see to it that some ‘Jai Chands’ are also within, and this is the time when they need to be exposed. There are some fringe groups who are conspiring and making futile attempts to dilute the Dogra movement on behest of some politicians who always became instrumental in selling out the interest of Jammu, Ch Lal Singh maintained.
He warned all the political parties, banking upon the votes of Dogras, that enough is enough and now Dogras will not get exploited and shall give a befitting reply to those forces which have been detrimental to the interests of Dogras.
