Joint Action Committee Roop Nagar continues protest

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 21: Joint Action Committee Roop Nagar has continued its peaceful protest dharna despite all odds with the participation and support of all sections of society, majority community, politicians irrespective of their political affiliation and members of civil society.
The selective approach of Jammu Development Authority (JDA) which led to the dismantling of poor people's concrete residential structures has united all sections of society.
"People from all sections of society participate in routine from the day one in dharna protest extending their support to the tribal community which remained neglected for years and kept isolated after being targeted by JDA on selective basis," said one of the protesting tribal leaders.
He said that the politicians are coming on daily basis as do the social and prominent citizens' along with the locals.
"Everyone has extended support which shows that they know JDA has done injustice to the poor tribal community," another tribal leader said.
A member of civil society who participated in dharna recalled that "There are elements who tried their best to create confusion and divide society but they have failed in their attempts with the united face of the people irrespective of their religious identity."
"JDA has provided an opportunity to the people from all sections of society to get united against the injustice and unlawful acts which needs strong condemnation," a member of JAC said.
Another social activist, who wished not to be named, said "We need to understand the JDA works under the influence of a political party which suits their ideology. With the track record of JDA, people now have realized that every poor and neglected section of society including SC and ST are being deliberately targeted."
The social activist further said that they will not allow the divisive forces to succeed to create division, and Gujjars-Bakkerwals are a part of our society.
"STs should not think they are alone. We are alongwith them in this struggle for their constitutional right to have their right on the land where their ancestors have lived for centuries," they added.
The social activist said that the Govt must intervene and reinstate the snatched land in favour of the displaced tribal community.
"It is a humanitarian issue which should not be looked at differently. If today tribals are targeted, other sections of society can also be the victims tomorrow. Hence, we have to unite in these circumstances," another member added.
Despite these tribal people were agitating since January 11, no official of administration came to listen to their grievances and not even provided any assistance neither for people nor for their cattle.
