In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Harsh Dev Singh, former Minister and senior National Panthers Party leader has vehemently criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party government for “ruthlessly trampling upon the rights of Kashmiri people resulting in alienation amongst general masses”.
While addressing a gathering in Pakhlai village of Chenani in Udhampur district, he said that the Kashmiris were mystified and befuddled by the abrupt abrogation of Article 370 and they had expressed their strong opposition to the dismantling of 200 years old historical State of J&K and downgrading it to the level of UT. He said that such a move of BJP government had not only lowered the morale of the people but caused huge disenchantment in the hearts and minds of general masses.
“It was not a demotion of the State only. In fact every sensible citizen felt downgraded and humiliated. It had deeply hurt the sentiments of the people of J&K who felt belittled and dwarfed”, said Singh. Demanding early restoration of statehood and installation of an elected govt, Harsh Dev urged the Indian President to personally intervene to save the people of J&K from dictatorial and autocratic regime.
