JAMMU, Dec 14: The Chamber of Commerce and Industries Jammu has alleged that settlement of outsiders/ foreign nationals in Jammu is mockery of the Article 370  and also a great security threat for the country and the State.
Addressing a press conference here today, the CCI president  Rakesh Gupta questioned the State Government’s stand on dual policy of enforcing Article 370 on different lines  in Kashmir where even the construction of Sainik Colony for the people serving in JKP and are the State subjects,   and even colony for Kashmiri Pandit migrants who are indispensible part and parcel of the State has not seen the light of the day because of threats from anti-nationals within the State and on the other hand allowing the settlement of  non-state subjects and even foreign nationals (Bangaldeshis) in Jammu.
The Jammu Chamber also questioned the Government that on one hand the human rights of the people from West Pakistan have been violated over decades by denying them their rights even being Indians and on the contrary being mute spectators to the unlawful settlement of foreign nationals here.
The CCI pointed out that it was deliberate attempt by unseen forces who have made demographic changes visible in Jammu city and its surroundings. These people  could be threat to the peace  and security of the State.  These people can provide all possible support and shelter to the anti -nationals to carry out not only attacks on security forces but maybe involved in the menace of drugs, thefts and all sorts of crimes without being traced.
The Chamber questions the concerned departments responsible for enforcing the laws as far as the licensing conditions for Rehris and the open shops on road sides and individuals selling on their heads and shoulders at the bus stands and Railways stations and the stuff they are authorized to sell resulting huge tax evasion and loss to the exchequer but also in traffic mess.
The Chamber feels that the people of Jammu & Kashmir should get ready for the final fight to force the Government to take the matters of security of common people and the sacrifices of the security forces seriously and also protect the rights and share of the traders and the industrialists.
Junior vice president  Deepak Aggarwal and secretary CCI Rahul Mahajan were also present.
