JAMMU, Oct 18: IkkJutt Jammu has reiterated that separate Jammu state is the only panacea available to meet the national requirement, empower people of the province to manage their own affairs, defeat enemies working day and night to change Jammu’s demography and create Kashmir-like situation in this strategic region.
“The otherwise historic reforms of August 5, 2019 have miserably failed to produce the desired results and the people of Jammu Province continue to groan under the yoke of Kashmiri, communal, bigoted, oppressive and totalitarian eco-system aided and backed by the Government at Delhi,” said Advocate Ankur Sharma, President IkkJutt Jammu while addressing a press conference at the party headquarters, here today.
He said that except for a brief period of Articles 370/35-A abrogation, Jammu people have been witnessing a continuous process of defeating the purpose of removal of Article 370. “Jammu Province has further been pushed to a permanent inferior status and it continues to be a colony of Kashmir thanks to the unfortunate perpetuation of 70 Years’ old State of India’s Nehruvian Policy Paradigm on J&K,” he emphasised.
The IkkJutt Jammu chief warned that people of Jammu province will rise in revolt sooner than later if the powers-that-be in New Delhi continue to treat Jammu as a Kashmir’s colony in its desperate bid to appease, please and pamper the Jihadis in Kashmir.
Justifying the demand for separate Jammu State, Ankur Sharma said that the manner in which Jihadi leadership in Kashmir identified itself with Taliban, Pakistan and China and terrorists brutally murdered innocent peaceful Hindus and Sikhs in Kashmir; the manner the people of Jammu province were ill-treated and excluded from all walks of life even after the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A, have once again established that Jammu Province and Kashmir Valley just can’t be maintained as a single political unit.
“To maintain Jammu and Kashmir Valley as a single political unit will be only to help the protagonists of Nizam-e-Mustafa convert Jammu alike Kashmir, cause Hindu-Sikh migration from Jammu and achieve the age-old objective: separation of J&K from India and its merger with Pakistan,” he said and added that separation of Jammu from Kashmir alone could avert the impending disaster in Jammu province and help the nation in this sensitive border region.
