Says BJP attempts to create religious & regional divisions between Jammu & Kashmir
SRINAGAR: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti Wednesday said that the latest order for registration of new voters by the Election Commission of India (ECI) will be a blow to the Dogra culture and identity.
In a series of Tweets, People’s Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti said, “ECI’s latest order for registration of new voters makes it clear that GOIs colonial settler project has been initiated in Jammu. They will bear the first blow to Dogra culture, identity, employment & business”.
BJP attempts to create religious & regional divisions between Jammu & Kashmir must be thwarted because whether its a Kashmiri or a Dogra, safeguarding our identity & rights will be possible only if we put up a collective fight, Mehbooba said.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Deputy Commissioner Jammu yesterday issued an order authorizing tehsildars (revenue officials) to issue certificates of residence to those residing in the winter capital for more than one year to facilitate their entry in the ongoing special summary revision of electoral rolls.
