Asserting that Congress party will not remain as a mute spectator over the everyday orders and notifications issued by the Center on Jammu and Kashmir, the party’s J&K unit today said whatever happened on August 5 last year was unconstitutional, undemocratic and unjust.
In a statement issued to press from here J&K Pradesh Congress Committee Vice-President and former MLC G N Monga said the BJP government was hell-bent upon snatching everything from the people of Jammu and Kashmir by amending and bringing in different laws almost on a daily basis.“Government of India and its bureaucrats in J&K are making and announcing new laws on almost every day basis. The October 26 order by the Center on land laws is a bizarre attempt to distort facts, weave lies and mislead people. Even those issues which should have been left to the elected government and peoples representatives are being touched by the bureaucrats which is absolutely against the principles of democracy,” he said.
“The BJP government is least bothered about the aspirations of the people and is taking arbitrary, politically motivated and anti-people decisions on Jammu and Kashmir which Congress will fight tooth and nail. The Congress party will not remain silent on such issues,” the JKPCC Vice President asserted.
He said that such experiments have failed in the past as well and are bound to fail even now. “The new land laws are an assault on the rights of people of J&K which will bring a lot of misery for the people. There are serious concerns among the people of Jammu and Kashmir over the new land laws,” Monga said.
While terming the August 5, 2019 as the darkest day in the history of Jammu and Kashmir and Indian democracy, he said the BJP government has pushed the region into a quagmire for its vote-bank politics.
