Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 1: Former J&K Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday said that J&K has become poor since its transition into a Union Territory.
Azad while talking to reporters here said, “There were 13000 industries in Kathua, Samba and Jammu before J&K was downgraded into a UT. At present 7500 industries in these areas are closed. In Kashmir all industries are shut.”
He said, “The erstwhile State has become poor during the past two years and the promises of development were just eyewash. Things are bad from Ladakh to Lakhanpur.”
Azad said, “J&K natives are being deprived of jobs. In the past two years our region has moved 30-years backward. Political parties should realize that they can no longer raise hollow slogans and should not repeat the mistakes that were committed in the past. All the parties did get a chance to rule J&K in the past.”
He said, ‘We have started a struggle to get the State back. Political parties should stop dividing people on the name of religion as the masses want development and the redressal of their issues.”
