JAMMU: NDPI chief appeals political, social, cultural and the common masses to join the peaceful struggle against discrimination with Jammu National Democratic Party Indian (NDPI).
National Democratic Party Indian (NDPI) expressed its strong concern over the Jammu region is grossly discriminated in all most all walks of life and for this discrimination not only the valley based political masters are responsible but the passive attitude of the Jammu political leaders is no less responsible for the gross discrimination and injustice with the Jammu region.
NDPI held an office bearers meeting in the party office, here on Tuesday, which was addressed by NDPI chief Rajesh Gupta who was accompanied by other senior leaders including Umesh Manhas, Rajiv Luthra, S. Kuljit Singh, Sandeep Anand and Tilak Raj.
Rajesh Gupta appealed to people of all walks of life of Jammu to join the peaceful struggle against discrimination with Jammu. NDPI chief said, “In the matter of education, employment, professional trainings, allocations of the funds and budgets, economic and social development and for the national projects and its allocations the Jammu stands discriminated and this is a sad commentary and it adversely impacts all of us.
So the political leadership of Jammu, social and cultural organizations as well as the common masses of Jammu should stand up and be ready for the peaceful struggle so that the discrimination with the Jammu province will be removed but it requires selfless struggle on the part of the people and political leaders’.
NDPI leader said, “the Jammu province has been largely discriminated by the successive valley dominated rulers ever since the dawn of the democratic rule. The fact that the Jammu region stands grossly discriminated is not hidden from anyone. It is very disturbing that step-motherly treatment has been meted with the Jammu region and there is an immediate need to do away with over seven decades of the continuous discrimination and give the people of this region its due share in the matters of socio economic and political development”.
NDPI president further added, “Thus discrimination is rite large on the face of Jammu and this is a serious matter and the political parties and leaders of Jammu should not play second fiddle to the perpetuation of the hegemony by the Kashmir centric rulers and political masters. So serious efforts need to be undertaken by the powers that be to facilitate the discrimination-free Jammu so that this division will also feel justice and equity in the lap of the democracy and the sooner it is done the better.
He also called for immediate assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir and said that only a democratically elected Government can come concrete on the security front as the bureaucratic setup of LG Administration has failed.
