JKPCC welcomes Azad’s recent speech in Rajya Sabha


‘Hope statehood to J&K is restored soon and assembly elections held at the earliest’: Monga
Srinagar, Feb 06 (KINS): While welcoming Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad’s recent statement in Rajya Sabha Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Saturday hoped that after the restoration of 4G internet services, the Center will fulfill other demands raised by the congress senior leader in the Parliament.
In a statement issued to news agency KINS, JKPCC Vice President and former MLC G N Monga said “Azad sahib had rightly raised the issue of restoration of high speed 4G internet, restoring statehood to J&K and holding early assembly elections in the Parliament during his recent speech”.
“While restoration of 4G internet services is welcome, we are hopeful that statehood to J&K is restored and assembly elections held at the earliest. Similarly, the order of issuing domiciles to non-locals must be rescinded without any further delay,” Monga demanded.
“As Azad sahib rightly put it in the Rajya Sabha that local people across the three regions – Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh – are not happy that anyone can buy their land or get jobs, it is high time that the Center takes appropriate steps to correct the wrongs done on 5 August 2019,” the Congress leader said.
He said the August 5 decision has triggered vehement criticism from residents of Jammu as well as Kashmir and Ladakh, who say they will be deprived of government jobs and land holdings.
“The domicile law passed last year allows outsiders a claim on local jobs which are few and far. Unemployment rate was already high in Jammu and Kashmir and the government sector was the only hope for unemployed educated youth. But now that right too has been snatched from them”” Monga said.(KINS)
