JAMMU, June 7: Reiterating its demand for re-organisation of the State by creating separate States  of Jammu and Kashmir and granting Union Territory status to Ladakh, Shri Ram Sena,(J&K Unit) today said that by creating three separate States of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh will lead to development of all the three regions uniformly.
In a statement issued here today, State president of Shri Ram Sena, Rajiv Mahajan said the three regions of the State altogether have different geographical conditions, different cultures, different languages as well as living patterns.
“We are not in favour of trifurcation of the Jammu and Kashmir State but it is due to the circumstances created by the separatists and Hurriyat leaders at the helm of affairs that has compelled us to raise such a demand,” he said.
“Trifurcation of the State is the only viable option that can meet the aspirations of not only the people of Jammu region but also of Ladakh and Kashmir regions,” he said, adding that people of Jammu and Ladakh regions suffered in all walks of life— in development activities, in services and in allocation of funds.
