MoS Home punctures Domicile Law balloon; Delimitation distant dream
No one in Delhi takes J&K BJP leaders seriously?

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Dec 14: Union Minister of State for Home, G Kishan Reddy, without mincing any words has made it clear that Government of India (GoI) won't bring any law on the lines of Article 371 (Domicile Law) in the newly carved Union Territory (UT) of Jammu & Kashmir. Replying to a query in the Parliament, Reddy said that if people want any such law they would have to wait till the Assembly elections are held and wait for the constitution of the Legislative Assembly, which is vested with powers to make laws.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "Since the day J&K has been reorganized, the BJP leaders in the Union Territory of J&K were trying to tell the people that the rights of the permanent residents of the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir would be safeguarded and a special Domicile Law will come into force soon. But their claims stand punctured as the GoI has made it clear that no such law is in offing."
He said that since August 5, when centre announced its decision to abrogate J&K's special status and divided it into two Union Territories, the voices in Jammu region to protect the identity of the locals have become shriller. "Opposition parties have been raising this issue again and again and have been trying to garner support from the people. BJP had countered their moves in Jammu by assuring the people that they need not to worry and party is very much aware about the demands of the locals," the analyst added.
He said that people of Jammu in 2014 Assembly elections had voted for the BJP wholeheartedly with a hope that the leaders of the saffron party would plead the cause of Jammu and won't follow the footsteps of their predecessors. "Soon after entering into power sharing agreement with the Kashmir-centric People's Democratic Party (PDP) in March 2015, the Jammu based leaders forgot the people who had voted for them and the BJP leaders became second fiddles of the PDP. They kept on reaping the fruits of power till the BJP High Command in June 2018 decided to withdraw from the PDP-led government in Jammu & Kashmir," the analyst said.
An observer said, "Soon after J&K was reorganized, the BJP leaders tried to take credit for it and started beating the trumpet that first Chief Minister of J&K UT will be Dogra from Jammu region and Delimitation will be held soon after Jammu & Kashmir starts functioning as the Union Territory. They even assured the people that Domicile Law will also come into force."
He said, "The developments which have taken place during the past four months indicate that no one in New Delhi takes BJP leaders from J&K seriously and they just keep on coining the slogans and the ideas to keep themselves relevant."
