Rattled Omar, Mehbooba, Lone teach new geography
Divisional status for Ladakh

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Feb 10: Decision of Governor SP Malik (read Prime Minister Narendra Modi's decision as J&K is under President's Rule) to grant divisional status to Ladakh with its headquarters at Buddhist-majority Leh has rattled Kashmiris like Omar Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti and Sajad Lone. It has so confused them that they have forgotten geography and terming Jammu's mighty mountain Pir Panchal and river Chenab as Valleys.
Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has questioned the very intensions of New Delhi and demanded trifurcation of Jammu province. "The decision to set up headquarters of the Ladakh Division at Leh is an injustice with the people of Kargil," she has said, added that she also wanted divisional status for Pir Panchal region and Chenab Valley. Another former Chief Minister and National Conference Vice-President Omar Abdullah has held out a categorical commitment that the National Conference, if came to power, will grant divisional status to what he called Pir Panchal region and Chenab Valley. In fact, he has threatened to break Jammu province.
Not just Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah. The BJP's friend and its pre-poll ally, former minister out of the BJP quota and chief of the Kupwara-based People's Conference, Sajad Lone, and a known Pakistani Engineer Rashid, too, have been hurt and got rattled by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's path-breaking decision. Sajad Lone, like Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah, has made a fool of himself by demanding "divisional status for Pir Panchal and Chenab".
The rattled and confused Sajad Lone forgot that Pir Panchal is a mountain and Chenab is a river and mountains and rovers just can't be granted divisional status.
There exists no such region as Pir Panchal region and there exists no such Valley as Chenab Valley anywhere in Jammu province. Pir Panchal is a mighty mountain that forms a natural boundary between Jammu province and Kashmir region. All the four districts of Doda, Kishtwar, Ramban and Poonch and parts of Rajouri district are located in the Pir Panchal mountain range.
It appears that Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah have not read geography. Had they read geography even casually, they would not have termed Pir Panchal and river Chenab as Valleys. Valley means a piece of plain land surrounded by mountains from all sides.
