STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Former Minister and BJP leader, Sham Lal Sharma said that there is some confusion in minds of people regarding Article 370, job avenues and their rights on their property, which the opposition political parties have created for their vested interest. Sham Sharma said that people should not pay any heed towards the propaganda of opposition parties with regard to Article 370, jobs and property rights. He assured people that their rights will be safeguarded at any cost within the Constitution of India. “Some political parties in J&K are trying to score political points by spreading rumours against Article 370 to scare people of Jammu by saying that outsiders will occupy their lands and claim right in employments,” he added.
