JAMMU, May 13: Shiv Sena Balasaheb Thackeray, Jammu and Kashmir unit protested today outside the party office in Jammu, accusing the Central Government for ignoring Jammu issues and working under pressure of Kashmiri lobby.
J&K president of Shiv Sena Manish Sahni said that the faces have changed but the internal compulsions have remained the same. Sahni said clearly that the Centre is working under the pressure of a Kashmir-centric to achieve some hidden agenda as even in case of restoration of 4G internet services, the people of Jammu division are paying the price for the disturb conditions of Kashmir.
Sahni said that due to COVID-19, the 148-year-old Darbar Move tradition was expected to end for the first time, but perhaps the Kashmiri lobby managed to exert pressure on this decision too. He said that the West Pak Refugees have also been paying the price of being from Jammu division for the last 73 years. The domicile law which the Central Government has implemented in J&K has also disappointed them to a large extent while all the rights have been given to the refugees of Kashmir settled outside J&K.
The Shiv Sena leader said that attitude of the Government towards Jammu forced the people to think that nothing has been changed even after revocation of Article 370. Sahni said that the BJP leaders had forgotten that they had got 25 Assembly seats from Jammu division. These BJP leaders would have to pay a heavy price to ignore Jammu issues, he added.
