24

Srinagar: National Conference on Sunday termed the changes into permanent resident certificates by the administration as an attempt to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.

In a letter that Party’s leader Omar Abdullah posted on social media website Twitter, NC has expressed it’s displeasure over the move and has said the practice is against spirit of democracy and participative democracy.

Further adding that the party considers the move as objectionable and condemnable, “It is a brazen act to further create mistrust among people here, and can have serious ramifications of the state,” the statement reads.

The party believes that the move is questionable at a time when there is no elected government.

NC has alleged that the decision was taken without consultations with any political party and that other stake holders were carried out, “Our state is a sensitive state and any misadventure by the SAC could disturb fragile and precarious peace of the state,” the letter further reads.

Adding that the decision should be rolled back and that the party was displeased and opposed the move.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
