SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Conference President Sajad Lone has questioned the new land lease laws in Jammu and Kashmir stating that the new land policy is not at par with the rest of the country.
In a tweet, Lone said, “It (land policy) may well start the dark chapter of now blatantly othering the Kashmiris. Lease rules across the world and in India are fairly simple and on similar lines. But these are different and not without motives.”
Recently the Jammu and Kashmir administration unveiled the new Land Lease Law 2022 under which leaseholders of commercial properties were asked to hand over properties to the government with the latter providing compensation for the structures built on the property by the former.
