“Sense of enslavement” in Jammu: Onus lies on BJP

Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh holding National Conference and Congress responsible for growing sense of enslavement rising in Jammu region would by all probabilities trigger provocations against BJP itself as the introduction of land buying rights to non Jammu & Kashmir residents in Jammu & Kashmir by the BJP controlled central government is the cause of the sense of enslavement presently brewing up more in Jammu region and less in Kashmir valley. Even naives can’t dispute the fact that land buying rights to outsiders is the biggest tool of physical discrimination as the land owned by the J&K residents at their ancestral places would be easily taken away by the outsiders now with the introduction of buying rights to non J&K residents under the new land laws. Keeping in view the hassle free road and rail transport connectivity of Jammu region with other parts of the country the industrialists would prefer to settle down in Jammu region and not Kashmir valley where the transportation of even ration and essential commodities is badly hit for not less than four months in chilly winter season. So in the presence of a prompt train and road connectivity the Jammu region becomes a preferred destination for land buyers of the other parts of the country planning industrial investment in Jammu & Kashmir. While accusing Congress party and National Conference of playing with the Dogra pride in Jammu region the highly responsible Minister of State (MoS) in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) does not talk about replacing the state subject law with a fractured domicile law knowing that the Dogra rulers were the architects of the erstwhile state subject law that governed citizenship rights of the people  of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state. True it is that law makers are always at liberty to scrap the chapters of the constitution or replace them with new one’s according to their own wisdom and priorities but they can never ever scrap the chapters of the political, institutional,cultural and administrative history of any state, province, district and even a block in any part of any country.

Only naives would subscribe to the view that Dogras’ of Jammu are not abreast with the political, institutional and administrative history of erstwhile Jammu & Kashmir state as the irrefutable fact is that Dogras’ of Jammu know more about the political, institutional, cultural and administrative history of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir than their contemporaries of  Kashmir valley and Ladhak areas. 

Playing politics over last year’s August 5 decisions is as good a right of Jitendra Singh as is that of others including the likes of Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba, Mufti and Sajad Gani Lone. Only naives would subscribe to the view that Dogras’ of Jammu are not abreast with the political, institutional and administrative history of erstwhile Jammu & Kashmir state as the irrefutable fact is that Dogras’ of Jammu know more about the political, institutional, cultural and administrative history of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir than their contemporaries of  Kashmir valley and Ladhak areas.
