Terming the Central Government’s order defining domicile law for Jammu and Kashmir against the interests of people of the erstwhile state, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Vice President and former MLC G N Monga today said when the entire world has been engulfed by coronavirus pandemic, the BJP government rubbed further salt into the wounds of people of J&K.
In a statement, he said it shows the true colours of the BJP. “The order has been deliberately issued at a time when the entire world, the country as well as Jammu and Kashmir is facing a dreadful threat due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus resulting in a complete lockdown.”
“Instead of focusing on fighting against the deadly disease, the BJP government at the Center issued domicile law to further humiliate and subjugate people of J&K. The order is against the wishes and interests of people of J&K, especially its youth. The order contains no word related the protection of land and jobs and has been issued just for the sake of issuance,” Monga said.
Asking the government of India to immediately roll back the order, the Congress leader said, “The priority of the government should be to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country as well as in Jammu and Kashmir.”
