JAMMU: Perturbed by the government apathy towards the civil unrest and mass agitation for the demand of district status at Nowshera, Sunderbani and Kalakote in Rajouri, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister, Harsh Dev Singh on Wednesday appealed to the Governor for his indulgence so as to settle the issue and diffuse the crisis.
He was addressing a press conference here.
Smelling a deep rooted conspiracy hatched by the unholy alliance and BJP leaders in particular, Harsh said that they had purportedly provoked the people in Nowshera, Sunderbani and Kalakote under a well planned ‘divide and rule’ policy.
The people sharing a common demand of creation of another district in Rajouri were divided and pitted against one another so as to delay and thereby deny and deprive them of their most coveted aspiration of an administrative unit which was genuine in nature, he regretted.
He held the Saffron Party squarely responsible for mishandling the situation in Rajouri.
With Nowshera observing complete Bandh for the last 28 days and having suffered immense losses in terms of commerce, trade and academics, the normal activity in the other two areas of Sunderbani and Kalakote had also come to grinding halt due to prolonged shutdown calls, anguished Harsh said.
Asserting that Panthers Party shall stand with the aggrieved people in their struggle for rights, he urged the protesting people not to fall into the trap of divisive Saffron policy but give a united fight so that the local aspirations were addressed and the sinister objectives of the unholy alliance got thwarted.
He further exhorted JACs of all three Tehsils to come over a common platform and put their heads together to come out with a solution accepted by all.
Paramjit Singh Marshall State President Panthers Trade Union, Parshotam Parihar State Secretary PTU and Basharat Ali General Secretary JKNPP were also present in the press conference.
