Ghulam Nabi Azad Criticizes Article 370 Revocation, Pledges Land and Job Protection Laws for Jammu and Kashmir

Jammu, 18-02-2024 : Ghulam Nabi Azad, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and Chairman of DPAP, denounced the revocation of Article 370 and 35-A as a monumental mistake and pledged to enact legislation safeguarding the land and job rights of locals if elected in the upcoming Assembly elections. Speaking at a public gathering in Paloura, Jammu North, organized by DPAP’s Provincial General Secretary, Advocate Maheshwar Singh Manhas, Azad acknowledged certain efforts of the Modi Government while vehemently criticizing the repeal of Article 370 and 35A, deeming it a grave historical misstep.

Azad highlighted the immense hardships faced by the people of Jammu and Kashmir post the abrogation of Article 370, citing soaring unemployment rates and a dearth of job opportunities, coupled with concerns over land ownership. He underscored the urgent need to address governance deficiencies and restore stability in the region.

Promising decisive action, Azad affirmed DPAP’s commitment to reinstate job and land rights, ensuring that outsiders are barred from acquiring land or securing employment in Jammu and Kashmir. Emphasizing the imperative of prioritizing development over divisive politics, he urged voters to rally behind a platform that champions progress and unity.

Asserting his non-discriminatory approach during his tenure as Chief Minister, Azad emphasized equitable development for all regions, promising to revive initiatives such as the Roshni Scheme to promote fair land distribution and inclusive growth.

Azad called upon the electorate to scrutinize DPAP’s track record and his own leadership credentials, vowing to spearhead initiatives that foster economic growth and job creation. The public meeting, presided over by DPAP’s Provincial General Secretary Maheshwar Singh, witnessed the participation of several prominent party members, underscoring the widespread support for Azad’s vision for Jammu and Kashmir’s future.
