JK News Today
Udhampur, April 01
Disseminating the agenda of separate Statehood of Jammu Pradesh among the masses, JKNPP’s ” Haq Insaaf Rath” spearheaded by Balwant Singh Mankotia and other party leaders and activists kick started the most coveted campaign from Salathia Chowk Udhampur today.
The leaders made the people aware about the the socio-political discrimination which they were being doled by the successive Kashmir and Delhi based governments. Mankotia, while addressing the series of public gatherings on the way said that the separate State was the only solution to all the biases suffered by the Dogras and the Paharis for the last 70 years. The rath finally reached Jammu where the NPP leaders addressed a public meeting at Ward No 65 at Barnai.
Mankotia while addressing the people at Barnai said that all the sects of Jammu region were the victims of discrimination and prejudices perpetuated by the Kashmir centric leadership since 1947. He said that the general public including traders, businessmen, farmers, unemployed and under employed youth, families of the martyrs, strife trodden border residents besides daily wagers, casual workers, contractual lecturers, etc .had been bearing the brunt of the discrimination in all spheres.
He said that the farmers were not paid any compensation against their colossal loss pertaining to crops, live stock, precious lives which were washed away by the catastrophic rains of Sept 2014 and there after. Similarly, border residents were facing the wrath of heavy Pak shelling and firing who were persistently denied plots measuring 5 marlas at safer zones. He said that people had pinned high hopes from the BJP but the Saffron Party failed to fulfill their aspirations. He said that the State coffers remained dry for the families of the martyrs who laid down their precious lives while serving the Motherland.
Taking the jibe at the BJP for betraying the people, Mankotia said that the Jammu youth were the worst sufferers with paltry share of employment coming to them as compared to Kashmir. He said the 85% selections to govt. jobs in PSC and SSB went to the youth of the valley and the youth of Jammu was made to content with rest 15% .
Moreover, the underemployed youth were languishing in open for regularizatio of their services and release of long pending wages which were held up by the govt. for unknown reasons. He said that the latest example of discrimination came to fore when the GoI enhanced the medical PG Seats in J&K State to 70, out of which Medical College Jammu got mere 13 seats while 57 seats went to Kashmir Valley which corroborated the fact that people of Jammu were persistently doled out discrimination in all every field.
He further added that after the unanimous resolution being adopted by JKNPP for separate state of Jammu on 23rd March 2017 during the Foundation Day Function, the Party shall constitute Panthers Statehood committees at Panchayat level all across Jammu Province.
