BJP govt castigated for failing to protect jobs, lands of locals in IIOJK

Jammu, December 03 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad has said that the Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has failed to protect jobs and lands of the people of the territory.

Ghulam Nabi Azad addressing a public rally at Surankote town in Poonch district said that the BJP was trying to create wedge among the Paharis and Gujjars in the region.

He said after the development of August 5, 2019, the BJP led government failed to protect jobs and lands of the locals. He said many BJP leaders gave assurances to enact law for protecting jobs and lands of the locals in IIOJK, but they have totally failed to protect the same.

He referred to the issuance of notices by the Indian government to the people who are possessing lands for the last four-five decades, and said the landless people had been provided lands in the territory, but it is unfortunate that the Modi regime is making people landless and homeless. He said the Kashmiris do not have much land and under the garb of development, the lands of the people are being snatched. The biggest issue before us at present is to safeguard our lands and jobs, Azad remarked.

The Congress leader said unemployment in IIOJK has reached an alarming situation and this government has failed to protect jobs of the local educated youth. He said the frustration is on rise among the educated youth.
