Right wing Hindu nationalist BJP MLA Ravinder Raina on Monday said that “there was nothing wrong” with allotting land to kin of ex-servicemen in Jammu and Kashmir.
“National Conference and separatists are raking up Sainik Colony issue to befool people of Kashmir. If former chief minister Omar Abdullah can own properties in Delhi and other parts of India, why cannot the kin of the martyred army men live in Jammu and Kashmir,” he told reporters in Jammu.
“J&K is an integral part of India and every Indian has the birth right to come and stay in the state,” he said.
The “Sainik Colony” housing project issue in the Valley has been in focus in the past.
“BJP demands grant of plots to the families of army men who died fighting in Jammu and Kashmir, Raina said.
“I will write to the Prime Minister and the Home Minister in this regard,” he said.
