Jammu Tawi, April 24
Rajesh Gupta President Jammu Warriors Front today urged Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti not to move Darbar as prevailing situation in Kashmir does not allow and it is waste of state exchequer.
In a press statement issued here wherein Jammu Warriors Front president and senior BJP leader and senior BJP leader president, Rajesh Gupta said that the current situation in Kashmir is not conducive as it is going to be similar to last year, where no business was taking place for about six months and the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh had to face serious problems.
When the Jammu and Kashmir Secretariat opened in the winter, the people of all the three regions got relief and their pending work was completed. In such a case, it is worth noting that there is no justification for the process of the Dogra tradition of about 150 years old (Darbar Move), which was started by the Dogra Maharaj in 1872, keeping in mind the circumstances of then. Rajesh Gupta further said that the big question is, why the government is doing this tradition in today’s situation when it has every right to keep secretariat at Jammu so that works and functioning of this institute keep going on till the situation in valley returns to normalcy. There is no point to continue with the tradition while people suffer.
Every year the capital of the state comes to Srinagar in summer and Jammu comes back in the cold. This shifting takes 18 to 20 days. During this time the state does not have any capital. By the way, for six-six months in Jammu and Kashmir, the people of both the areas are happy. During this move both the government and the employee have trouble. The situation in Kashmir tells us that how many people have been so disaffected that the police responsible for maintaining civic safety and law and order have started making their target. The result of this misfortune is that the terrorists targeted the houses of five police officers in a month.
