Early Times Report

JAMMU, Sept 2: Jammu Province People Forum (JPPF) in its meeting held in the Sehgal Hall of Cultural Academy under the chairmanship of Retired Session Judge Pavittar Singh Bhardwaj the President of the Forum, discussed a number of issues with main impetus on the implications of Article 35 A of the Constitution of India and the prevalent tense situation in the state when the case is already subjudice in the Supreme Court of India and has been adjourned for hearing during January 2019 in view of the proposed Panchayat and Local bodies elections in the state recently announced.
Dayasagar Sr Journalist clearly defined the Art 35 A and its discriminatory nature in conflict with Artcle 14,15 and 16 of the Indian Constitution which relate to the equality, equality of opportunity in matters of public employment and reservations. It also violates the fundamental rights under Article 19 of the constitution. He proposed the subjects for immediate, legitimate and possible corrections in the constitution of Jammu & Kashmir.
Giving his comments on Article 35 A KB Jandyal said that under the J&K Constitution there is ample provision of defining Permanent Residents under Section 8 and the state is fully empowered to declare anybody as Permanent Resident whether Safai Karamamchari families, Gorkhas or West Pakistan Refugees.
Narayansingh President Rajput Sabha impressed upon the public to educate people about the provisions of the Article 35 A in view of the fact that masses in general are simply swayed by the politicians without knowing the meaning in detail. People should have faith in the judiciary and wait for the verdict rather than falling in criticism and threats which smell antinationalism and should be avoided at all costs.
Concluding the discussion President Pavittarsingh Bhardwaj warned the forces inimical to the national integrity of the country of their nefarious designs to create unrest and chaos in the state with rumours to destabilize the peaceful atmosphere, religious amity, communal harmony and brotherhood in the society.
