SRINAGAR: J&K Awami National Conference (ANC) has expressed deep anguish & concerns over New Delhi’s policy of dividing and further disempowering the people of Jammu & Kashmir.
According to a statement , the ANC core group met here with the general secretary in chair which took serious note of New Delhi resorting to what it called ‘naked communalism’ on the basis of religion, caste, and ethnicity used by BJP to cover-up its abject failure of its Kashmir policy.
The meeting observed that total unity has to be exhibited from all quarters to beat this sinister design of the BJP to further divide the people & accomplish the agenda of “complete disempowerment” of J&K. The People should collectively rise to defeat such plans, the ANC core group emphasised.
The meeting further observed that Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh/Kargil is being gradually divested of its constitutional & democratic rights with very serious ramifications being witnessed in the business, employment, tourism, land & right to natural resources etc. Today both the Jammu & Ladakh divisions are crying for help & immediate stop to the communal agenda set by the BJP/RSS combine in the name of “ Empowering Jammu & Ladakh”. What the Government of India is doing since August 5, 2019 is an accepted fact that Jammu region & Ladakh region is also bearing the brunt of the misadventures and nefarious acts of the BJP government, the meeting observed.
The total failure of the BJP government has given J&K the distinction of recording the highest unemployment rate in the country at 21.6%.
The ANC group resolved that the party would leave no stone unturned in its efforts to fight the designs disempowering the people of Jammu & Kashmir and would raise the concerns and aspirations of all the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.
The Core group also expressed serious concern over the spree of recent arrests and filing of FIR’s against students within and outside J&K and resolved that ANC would explore and extend all possible help, including legal, to the victims of such action.
The meeting also condemned the government’s arbitrary actions against employees including the recent actions of illegal terminations.
