While speaking to the Early Times team, the members of the business community from Channi Himmat area wholeheartedly welcomed the decision of repealing Article 370 and said that it is in the best interest of the Jammu people.
"The landmark decision will be a big boost for the economy of Jammu as it will open up new avenues for big business investments which were only marginal till now due to restrictions to purchase land on outsiders," said Jatinder Gupta, who owns a sweet shop.
While Anil Soni, a building material trader, said "The decision to scrap Article 370 would change the destiny of Jammu. The monopoly of Kashmiris has ended with the decision."
Describing the decision as momentous, Rajinder Gupta, who runs a General Store, said, "The decision is in the interest of Jammu's business as the competition will grow which will ultimately be beneficial. We are thankful to union government for the initiative."
