New Delhi has “finally put land in J-K up for sale”, said former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, on the recent land laws that allows non-domiciles of J-K to acquire land in the region.

Ms. Mufti called the new laws as a part of “Government of India’s nefarious designs to disempower & disenfranchise people of J-K”. She wrote: “From the unconstitutional scrapping of Article 370 to facilitating loot of our natural resources & finally putting land in J&K up for sale.”

She further added: “After failing on all fronts to provide roti & rozgar to people, BJP is creating such laws to whet the appetite of a gullible electorate. Such brazen measures reinforces the need of people of all three provinces of J&K to fight unitedly.”

Earlier, on 26 October, New Delhi notified new laws, including fresh land laws, for the Union Territories (UTs) of J-K and Ladakh and omitted any precondition on purchase of land in J-K, as existed under Article 370 for the outsiders.

Last year, in August 2019, New Delhi had revoked the limited autonomy of erstwhile state of J-K. Under the newly introduced J-K Development Act (XIX of 1970), it notified that “omit, being permanent resident of the State”.
