NCP delegation submits memorandum to HM
9/13/2017 10:33:57 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 13: A delegation of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) today submitted memorandum to Home Minister Rajnath Singh. The memorandum highlighted the significance of including views and aspirations of the people of Jammu and Ladakh in reaching peace process. The message that only militancy pays, and Nationalist forces suffer, which has gained wide currency, must be nullified. "It is irony that little is known about the Plurality of Jammu & Kashmir state with diverse communities such as Dogras, Gujjars, Bakarwals, Gaddis, Paharis, Sikhs, Punjabis, Buddhist, Christians, Ladakhis, Kargilis, Kashmiri Pandits, Nationalist Muslims and a comman man from the valley, for whom the right of self determination has no appeal and even less is known about their political aspirations and political choises," reads memo.
It added that no central government has tried to sensitize the international community towards this multifaced character of the Kashmir conflict. These groups are fighting for their ethnic cultural identities and share for economic development, which they have been deprived of by the successive governments, especially by the Kashmiri dominated. The flood of money gushes into the Kashmir Valley today from the various sources, foreign as well as central government today are the cause of the militancy and also pollution of democracy in the State of Jammu & Kashmir. The vital issues of 1947 refugees, numbering more than five lakhs from POK, who fled from Muzafrabad, Poonch, Mirpur, the present border refugees uprooted from latest Pak shelling, Kahsmiri migrants and thousands of Safai Karamcharis of Jammu Municipality, who were brought from Punjab, just after Independence to do odd works in Jammu city and also lakhs of refugees from West-Pakistan, who stayed in Jammu after the partition, have no status and their new generation, who are well qualified, are aliens in their own country. The Nationalist Congress Party regrets that the larger national parties have failed to have a convenant, long-term policy on Jammu & Kashmir State and resolves to make upon itself the historic task of untangling the 70 years old knot, through a nation wide programme, which inter-alia must equal say for Jammu & Ladakh, replacing the present policy of valley-centric, few families oriented focus, that too few kashmiri speaking families out of the total 33% population, the rest of the non-kashmiri speaking population comprised of the above mentioned sections do not support to militancy. The people of nationalist outlook feel disheartened and demoralized, their aspirations are ignored, and their voices fall on the deaf ears. There is absolutely no reason to reject the demand of appointing a commission to recommend the delimitation of the constituencies of the parliament and the State assembly in accordance to the area and population of the regions, i.e., Jammu & Kashmir. For the government and political parties, there should be no hesitation for agreeing for separate political status for Jammu & Ladakh. In these regions, people have been demanding abolishing Article 35A and 370 for free flow of Indian Constitution. A start to counter and eliminate Pak sponsor terrorism has to be made from these areas. If people want a chance to make secular and nationalist cards, they should be allowed to do so. The memorandum included several other demands concerning Jammu region.
