"The decision of scrapping of Article 370 will certainly benefit to Jammu region particularly as it will end the discrimination being meted out to this region by the previous governments. There is possibility of holding delimitation process due to which the assembly constituencies of Jammu region are expected to be increased which will ultimately in favour of us. There is also chance that next Chief Minister will be from Jammu, which has never happened in last 70 years. It will give us our due share of government jobs for which we were deprived of since long ago," said Kuldeep Singh, an egg store owner at Satwari Chowk Jammu Cantt. "Earlier the loin share of central funds was expended in Kashmir region only while Jammu was given only peanuts due to which Jammu could not witness much development in previous decades. The scrapping of the Article 370 will also give boost to new job opportunities. New industrial units will open in coming days which will open various job avenues for the educated youth of the State," said Girdhari Lal, Ajay, Puran Choudhary.
Pardeep Kumar, a Tea Stall owner, while expressing his views on scrapping of Article 370, "With abrogation of Article 370, Jammu and Kashmir has become complete part of India, the article had created some difference with the other part of Jammu with its special status. During my visit in other states, the people used to see me with different prism due to article 370 and people used consider it discriminatory but we are now equal."
Sunil Bali, an entrepreneur said, "We are very happy with abrogation of article 370 but it would have been better that people of the State should have been taken into confidence before its abolishment as we are facing lot of problem due to restrictions imposed by the administration on internet facility due to which business community is at the receiving end. It is too early to predict the merits and demerits of abrogation of Article 370. Whether it will in our favor or not only time will tell."
"Educated youth will be more benefited working in private sector as their salary will increase. With coming of new industries in Jammu, the unemployed youth will also be benefited," said Rahul Singh, employee of an electronic shop.
Anshu Gupta, who runs Chemist Shop at Satwari Chowk said "We hail the step of Central government of scarping of Article 370 but we have some apprehensions of job securities of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir. PRC holders should be given priority in all jobs whether in government or private sector,".
