Watch | Without statehood, elected J-K govt will be weak: Nasir Sogami

Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Provincial President Nasir Sogami said that the Central government has betrayed the entire population of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir by abrogation of the special status of the region. He said that one cannot think of running a government without having real power; just like the elected government in New Delhi (UT) is not even able to transfer an officer.

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.
