NC seeks clarity on land allotment

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Aug 25: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference today sought clarity over the eligible beneficiaries of the Administration’s land for landless scheme, calling for greater transparency from the UT Administration regarding the scheme’s intentions and implications.
In a statement issued here today, party’s chief spokesperson, Tanvir Sadiq said, “We aren’t against the decision of granting land to landless, our party has been a fore-runner in elevating the plight of landless and deprived sections. However, such decisions should have been left to an elected government. The makeshift administration that is currently ruling J&K should confine themselves to day to day issues and not take decisions which have far reaching consequences.”
“The most important question that the people are asking is whether these beneficiaries were domiciles before August 2019 or after that. If it’s the latter, then it raises a question on the entire process,” Tanveer added.
