Srinagar, October 27: CPI (M) Secretary Ghulam Nabi Malik on Tuesday said that The Centre’s new land laws, paving the way for outsiders to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh has once again shown the real intentions of the BJP government to revoke Articles 370 and 35A.
In a statement here today, the CPI (M) leader said that his party oppose the new law tooth and nail. “The only intention to abolish the Constitution of J&K and revoked Articles 370 and 35A was to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir. Now with such laws everything becomes clearer. It is an eye-opener for those who still have illusions with the BJP government’s intentions towards Jammu and Kashmir,” Malik added.
“When Maharaja Hari Singh was ruling J&K in 1927, Dogras and Kashmiri Pandits, who were more educated, got domicile guarantees. They ensured that no outsiders must come and buy land in J&K or get jobs. The Maharaja brought State Subject in 1927 and made it into a law. No one objected then,” he further stated.
Malik questioned the legal validity of the order in light of the fact that the matter is sub-judice. The August 5, 2019 decision of the Center to abrogate Articles 35-A and 370 are pending before the Supreme Court and bringing new laws at the moment is akin to contempt of the court, he said.
The arbitrary decision of the BJP government to revoke Articles 35-A and 370 was the murder of democracy and an attack on the Constitution, the CPI (M) and added that the BJP violated the norms to convert J&K State into a Union Territory overnight without the consent of the stakeholders. The Centre was defying all democratic norms to achieve its objects.
The manner in which the government of India is dealing with J&K is a grave warning about the danger posed to the erstwhile state’s rights and federalism. Such moves have to be unitedly opposed for the welfare of the people of erstwhile state of J&K and integrity of the country.
