JAMMU, Nov 2: Former minister and president DCC Kathua, Dr Manohar Lal Sharma today demanded restoration of statehood to J&K with full job protection and land rights to the local people.
Talking to media-persons here today, Manohar Lal said that on October 26, 2020 BJP led Govt abolished the many year-old Land rights given to the J&K State by its fore fathers and lead by Maharaja Hari Singh during accession of J&K with Union of India. It is important to note that current ruling party is playing with the sentiments of the JK people and making mockery of its citizens. He said Congress condemns the anti-people and anti-farmer stance of BJP Government.
He said instead of giving jobs to J&K youth and creating more infrastructure, better roads, better health care and more opportunities for the youth, BJP is interested in doing is listening to their friends and doing crony capitalism and killing small and medium business men. They snapped 4G service and established Toll Plazas here.
He strongly demanded that statehood to Jammu and Kashmir should be restored with full protection of jobs and land rights. He said demotion of JK from State to UT is widely criticized on National and social platforms. Such bizarre incident has never happened or even thought before by any Government in the past. He demanded that JK should be immediately given the status of State from UT and Govt should also admit that they have done a mistake and render written apology to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
He further demanded regularization of daily wagers working in different Government departments under SRO-64. The said over 62000 daily wagers working in different Government departments like PHE, PDD, PWD, Rural Development, Irrigation and Flood Control and Forest, Fisheries are struggling since long and they should accorded justice.
DCC leader further demanded that unemployed youth in the J&K be given employment on fast track basis. There is frustration among the educated youth and Government must realize this fact. He said Centre must stop experimenting with J&K as they have done enough up to now. The people are also frustrated over the acts of BJP led Govt.
