Jammu, December 27
Jammu, December 27 ( JKNT ) PDP , the leading partner in the coalition government with BJP in Jammu and Kashmir is opposed to the grant of the domicile certificate to the West Pakistan Refugees and it may stop the process of issuance of the Identity Cards to WPRs.
PDP leaders have been weighing impact of the issuance of the ID cards to West Pakistan Refugees in the Valley where are all separatists and mainstream parties have risen up in arms against this move of the government , apparently taken after the pressure from the ministry of home affairs .
Sources in the party said that either the party would try to stall this process, which intends to grant identity so badly required by the WPRs to find hobs in the armed forces , or it would join the chorus with National Conference, CPI-M, Awami Iteehad Party and others in “ condemning this assault on the special status of the state.”.
The ruling party from Kashmir is facing the heat after separatists raised the ante and threatened agitation .
A hint of this appeared when the separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq took out a protest procession . This had the blessings of the government, which not long ago had kept the chief cleric of Kashmir under house arrest. PDP legislators are finding it difficult to justify the issuance of the ID to WPRs in their constituencies and among their own party cadre.
“ We will oppose the domicile certificate to WPRs in the Assembly,” a senior lawmaker told the party workers in Anantnag . “ Even if it means that the PDP would have to join the opposition in protest, we will stand by them,” the lawmaker was quoted by a source.
