JAMMU AND KASHMIR
Peoples Democratic Party senior leader Mohammad Sartaj Madni tuesday has reiterated that the Divisional status to Pir Panchal and Chenab Valley call of the hour and the demands of these regions if ignored can sow seeds of discord for future.
In a statement issued here, Madni accused the Governor administration of functioning without taking public sentiment into consideration or assessment of requirements on ground.
According to him, such a way of functioning is causing tensions and sowing seeds of discord for future in the already sensitive state having a very peculiar socio political architecture.
Madni said while it is a welcome step that Ladakh has been declared a division, it is at the same time unfortunate that the Governor administration has ignored the development deficit in Pir Panchal andi in Chenab Valley. Madni said that by ignoring these regions , the administration is creating new fault lines in the state which is already riven with problems.
