Jammu: Alleging increased bias and prejudice against Jammu region during the present regime Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party today said that Re-organisation of the state with statehood for Jammu was the only panacea for various ills afflicting the region.
“History bore testimony to the fact that Jammu region had all along remained neglected in various spheres including employment, development etc with Kashmir region holding majority not only in legislature but occupying the highest office of Chief Minster since the formation of the state with a few exceptions,” Party chief Bhim Singh told mediapersons.
He said that most distressing was the fact that incumbent saffron flavoured govt gave persistent shocks to Jammuites by their ignominious surrenders on all Jammu related issues under the smoke screen of national interest.
“And all this notwithstanding the fact that BJP had proclaimed themselves as champions of Jammu cause and besides being equal partners in the govt,” he lamented.
He further said that with the governance in J&K having been virtually hijacked by anti-nationals and separatists, it was impossible for Jammu region to grow and flourish in the present set up.
Describing the bias against Jammu region in the field of employment as most obnoxious, Mr Singh urged upon the people of Jammu especially the youth to unite for a decisive battle so as to safeguard the progeny, the future generations.
Appealing the youth and students to strengthen JKNPP, the lone political voice of Jammu region, for the honour and Justice to dogra land, Mr Singh said that the ultimate solution lay only in the creation of separate state for Jammu.
He said that those opposing state hood for Jammu were only acting as agents of their Kashmiri Masters who had lost their authority in Kashmir and wanted Jammus perpetual subjugation so as to continue their black rule over the dogra land.
