Don't take people of Jammu region for granted, Harsh warns Union
8/21/2019 9:58:39 PM
New Delhi, Aug 21: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) Chairman Harshdev Singh today warned the Union government for not taking the people of Jammu region for granted and demanded a separate state for the region.
"The demotion of the state to the level of Union Territory was not only unprecedented in the history but amounted to huge disparagement of the patriotic Dogras of Jammu region", Harshdev Singh said and cautioned cautioned the Union govt to stop taking the people of the region for granted.
He regretted that the mandated leaders of Jammu region remained tight lipped in the Parliament and failed to safeguard or protect the interests of the region and no objection whatsoever was raised when the entire province was again proposed as a colony of subjugation for Kashmir and announced as a UT through the Re-organization Bill. "Statehood for Jammu only can satiate the urges and aspirations of the people. Give our state back to us", Harsh asserted.
Harshdev Singh was addressing the protesters at Jantar Mantar New Delhi, infuriated over the suppressive measures adopted by the Govt. to place the nationalist leaders of the opposition in J&K under house arrest.
Addressing the media, Harsh Dev Singh pointed out that BJP led government had made a contemptuous mockery of the democracy by placing the opposition leaders of J&K under house arrest.
"Such unconstitutional and coercive measures are adopted only at the time of national emergency. In view of the tall claims of the GoI of normalcy in the State, why the government has been resorting to such undemocratic means? Such steps are unwarranted and only showcase the dictatorial character of the NDA government. Placing separatists and the leaders of Kashmir centric parties under house arrest is justifiable but the detention of nationalist leaders of Jammu who carried tricolours in their hands is appalling and defied all rationale" , Harsh roared.
He further expressed his dismay over the two set of rules enforced in the State of J&K wherein the ruling party leaders were allowed to hold public rallies and other publicity campaigns, the opposition leaders were placed under detention despite their nationalist and secular credentials.
Harsh Dev Singh while welcoming the abrogation of Art 370 and other allied provisions, vehemently flayed the downgrading of around 200 years old historical state of J&K to UT status. He said that such move had not only lowered the morale of the people of Jammu region but caused huge disenchantment in their hearts and minds.
He said that it was the only Dogra state in the country which was conceptualized and created by Dogra rulers with countless sacrifices made by the warrior clan. " History bears the testimony that J&K State was acceded to Union of India in 1947 which was only due to the historic decision taken by then Maharaja Hari Singh despite all pressures.
Harsh Dev Singh accompanied by Yash Pal Kundal and other senior leaders of the party joined the protest rally of the 'Dalit Samaj' organized against the demolition of Guru Ravi Das temple in New Delhi.
He expressed his solidarity with the Dalits and sought early construction of the temple in conformity with the wishes and aspirations of Dalit community.
Prominent among those who were present in the rally included Gagan Pratap Singh, Pawan Dev Singh, Ms Sudesh Dogra, Surjit Singh, Yashpal Sharma besides others.
