Jammu opposing ‘half baked’ domicile law prompted Centre to amend it
4/4/2020 11:17:31 PM

Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 4: In a move which surprised everyone, Centre just within a day amended the new domicile law for Jammu and Kashmir on late Friday night and reserved all the jobs for the people who would have stayed in the Union Territory for 15-years.
Many people are asking what prompted the Centre to amend the new law so quickly. “It seems that the first law which was put in the public domain was aimed at testing waters. But it evoked sharp reactions in Jammu region,” an analyst told Early Times.
He said, “Just reserving class-IV jobs for the domiciles of J&K created a furore in Jammu. Soon after the Government of India announced its decision to reorganize Jammu and Kashmir in August last year, people in Jammu raised the issue of having domicile law at place. Kashmir centric politicians tried their best to highjack the issue and left no stone unturned to project it as their demand but they couldn’t succeed.”
The analyst said, “Had the Centre not amended the law it would have hurt the people of Jammu region. But the leadership in New Delhi just took 24-hours to realize that a wrong has been done and it amended the law.”
An observer said, “Soon after the Centre came up with the first domicile law a few Kashmir centric parties, including Hurriyat Conference led by the Hurriyat dove, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, tried to instigate the people. The instigation was such that it could have once again led to protests and stone pelting in Kashmir.”
He said, “New Delhi during the past few years has studied the Kashmiri leaders very well. The Centre is aware of the fact that a few Kashmir centric leaders just wait for a chance to appease their bosses sitting in Pakistan. And these leaders could go to any extent to fulfill their designs.”
Another analyst said, “Kashmir centric leaders should stop projecting the amended domicile law as their achievement. The credit for having a domicile law for jobs in place goes to the people of Jammu. They are the ones who made New Delhi realize that having only class-IV jobs reserved for them will be a grave injustice with them.”
