Declare Maharaja’s holiday or cancel Sheikh’s holidays

JAMMU: Jammu Warriors Front (JWF) today asked the State Government to take a positive action on its demand to declare September 23, the birth anniversary of last Dogra king Maharaja Hari Singh as a State holiday or else cancel the holidays on both death and birth anniversaries of former Chief Minister Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah. Rajesh Gupta President JWF said that it failed to understand what was stopping the Government from taking a decision on its longstanding demand which involves regional longing. All political parties, social organizations and everyone wants holiday on September 23 as a mark of respect for the great Maharaja.
Rajesh Gupta warned the government of another ‘Bum Bum Bhole’ type agitation if it continued to under estimate the power of innocent Jammuites and play with their sentiments.
