Srinagar Oct 28: Former MP and former Cabinet Minister Ch. Lal Singh reacting to the newly introduced land laws in Jammu and Kashmir said that Jammu province, which suffered over the year at the hands of the successive governments both in the state and the center because of its nationalist character, should not be treated at par with that of Kashmir.
In a statement, he said that “both these provinces are poles apart in every respect including socially, politically, culturally and geographically.” He said that Jammu province always stood by the nation and accommodated all ethnic groups.
He said, “Jammu province which whole heartedly supported national interest and waited for long 70 years for the restoration of its dignity, cannot be treated with the same yardstick as that of Kashmir. The newly introduced land laws need to be introduced in the Valley only to maintain its age old pluralistic cultural ethos and to maintain its secular credentials by allowing people of different faiths to settle there as a befitting reply to the religious fundamentalists.”
