SRINAGAR, Oct 27: New Delhi has “finally put land in Jammu and Kashmir up for sale”, said former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, on the recent land laws that allows non-domiciles of J&K to acquire land in the region.
Mufti called the new laws as a part of “Government of India’s nefarious designs to disempower & disenfranchise people of J&K”. She wrote: “From the unconstitutional scrapping of Article 370 to facilitating loot of our natural resources & finally putting land in J&K up for sale.”
She further added: “After failing on all fronts to provide roti &rozgar to people, BJP is creating such laws to whet the appetite of a gullible electorate. Such brazen measures reinforces the need of people of all three provinces of J&K to fight unitedly.”
Earlier, on 26 October, New Delhi notified new laws, including fresh land laws, for the Union Territories (UTs) of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh and omitted any precondition on purchase of land in J-K, as existed under Article 370 for the outsiders.
