Wrongs of previous Govts undone: BJP

JAMMU: J&K BJP while welcoming the amendment of Domicile Law has said that the Modi led Union Govt at the Centre is fully determined to undo the wrongs oof the previous regimes.
This was stated by JKBJP President Ravinder Raina accompanied by former Dy. Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta, General Secretary & former Minister Sunil Sharma, BJP headquarters. Incharge & former Minister Smt. Priya Sethi and Spokesperson Advocate R.S. Pathania while addressing a press conference at party headquarter here today.
While welcoming the passage of J&K (Adaptation of State Laws) Second Order 2020 which seeks to grant domicile status to husbands of J&K women married outside, Ravinder Raina said that NC, PDP, Congress had been selling dreams of all sorts to people of J&K since the past so many decades. And it was ironical to see that secessionists leaders who had married women from outside the country including Pakistan had ensured state subject rights / status for them. But daughters of J&K who were marrying people within India but outside J&K were losing all the rights in J&K. An alarm bell to the effect was sounded by full bench of J&K High Court while delivering the final judgement in Dr. Sushila Sawhney Vs State of J&K in the year 2002. High Court had held the law as gender discriminatory. But the anti-women Bill was pushed through the J&K Assembly with 2/3rd majority where Cong, NC, PDP were on same page. Nonetheless, with the enactment of J&K reorganization Act the idea of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshta Bharat’ has been put in to play. And all such anti-women, anti-youth, anti-people laws / arrangement have been put beneath the carpet. Although as per the existing arrangements some categories of people have been seek Domicile Status subject to fulfillment of certain conditions. It is the same vein the another progressive law has coming to play. The families of women marrying outside have been made eligible for domicile status. This marks another milestone post 5th of Aug. 2019 in J&K history. And the people of J&K, especially women, are upbeat and in high spirits.
Raina expressed his sincerest thanks to the Central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well the UT dispensation led by LG Manoj Sinha.
