JAMMU, Apr 17: Reiterating that Article 35A and Article 370 are most dangerous tools in the hands of fundamentalists in Kashmir perpetuating Jihad in India, Ikkjutt Jammu today claimed that its stand has been vindicated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and BJP national president Amit Shah, who publically acknowledging that these controversial provisions have not only harmed the people of the State but has also hurt the nation.
“All these Constitutional authorities post Pulwama attack on number of occasions publicly declared that these Articles have only promoted separatism in the State and Congress consolidate their position to adversely affect the national interest,” said Ankur Sharma, Chairman of IkkJutt Jammu, while addressing a press conference, here today.
Ankur further said that the announcement made by PM Modi at Akhnoor and Kathua that he was committed to eradicating the pernicious concept of two Flags and two Constitutions, have further vindicated the stand of Ikkjutt Jammu that if India was to survive as one nation and people of Jammu and Ladakh provinces were to be saved from the onslaught, Article 35A and Article 370 have to go lock, stock and barrel.

At the same time, Ankur Sharma said that Ikkjutt Jammu would appreciate the PM all the more the day he scraps Article 35A and Article 370 granting full citizenship to more than two lakh West Pakistani Refugees, Minority Rights in J&K to minority Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jains and Christians by implementing SC judgment and evolve a policy to reverse demographic Invasion on Jammu.
“Jammu province is in danger. Concerted moves have been afoot since 1996 to change its demography by looting the State and Forest lands in and around Jammu city. The demographic profile of Jammu has drastically changed and this process has to be reversed,” he stressed and added that the time to restructure the State has come.
“It would be only in the fitness of the things if Jammu Province is declared a full-fledged State and Kashmir and Ladakh declared Union Territories,” he said adding that it has also become imperative for New Delhi to start parleys with the religiously cleansed and Internally-displaced Kashmiri Hindus to know what could satisfy them and meet their legitimate aspirations.
