JAMMU: Taking a dig at Mehbooba Mufti for her statement for holding talks with militant groups and separatists,   Former Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta said that it is the frustration of Former Chief Minister of the state that she has started talking the language of separatists. He said this in an interview to a private news channel.  He blamed “political exploitation” of PDP, National Conference and Congress for the renewing turmoil in Kashmir valley.

Accusing NC-Congress and PDP for playing with the sentiments of Kashmir people, he said these are the parties who are responsible for the turmoil in Kashmir. They are now supporting the anti national elements and polarising the situation in the state. Asking the people to teach all such parties a lesson for their misdeeds and breaking promises Gupta said all the three parties have sold the dreams of autonomy, self rule and dialogue for peace with dignity but have done nothing to bring peace and prosperity to the State. He said time has come for the people to close the chapter for all those who have been exploiting them for the last seventy years.

On the question of separatists refusing to meet all-party delegation members last year, he said, “I cannot say whether they took a bad decision by not meeting the delegates from union Government. They repeatedly   ask for the dialogue but when someone comes to meet them they do not open the doors for the delegation members,” he said.  

On the question of talks with the separates and militant groups as advocated by Mehbooba Mufti, Gupta said that BJP Government at the centre is ready for talks with anyone who is ready to hold talks as per the constitution of India. He said she has fallen back on the soft separatism card just to get sympathy on communal lines and garner votes in the upcoming Assembly and parliamentary elections.

On the question of terming local militants as "sons of the soil" by Mehbooba Mufti, Gupta said by this statement she has humiliated the Indian security forces by issuing such statement on Army Day.  Every person who is antinational and work on behest of their akas from across border is “Militant” and playing politics on their killing, funeral and agitations thereafter is really condemnable, Gupta said.

  • No can run exhibition without permission!
  • The devastating fire incident held two years ago should be lesson for organizers
  • District administration should take cognizance of such sheer violation and take action against violators if found 

JAMMU: Openly defying the laws of land, the organizer of ‘Trade Fair cum Exhibition Sale Center’ at Gole Market, Gandhi Nagar has started the exhibition despite the denial of permission from District Administration, Jammu after obtaining the NOCs from Traffic Police, Police and Fire Services. The sources in the office of District Magistrate, Jammu told that they have not issued permission to the organizer to run exhibition and moreover complaints have been received by this office against this exhibition which has been further forwarded to Senior Superintendent of Police, Jammu to immediately stop it. 

The Gole Market area of the Gandhi Nagar is the busiest area of the Gandhi Nagar and this area should be given due attention and properly maintained besides it should be made a hassle-free zone to regularize the traffic and other business activities. The organizer without following proper procedure and deliberately ignoring all the rules and regulations framed by the state government for starting the exhibition has not only installed the infrastructure but he started the exhibition besides also indulged in selling of the items exhibited in the exhibition. 

One organization namely ‘Mahatma Gandhi Intellectual’s Society’ has approached the office of District Magistrate on January 10 and submitted a complaint against the running of exhibition in the area of Gole Market, Gandhi Nagar and the same organization again lodged a reminder in this concern on January 12, 2019. The sources said that the complaints received by the office of District Magistrate, Jammu have s been forwarded to Senior Superintendent of Jammu to immediately stop the exhibition in case it is in illegal state. 

It is pertinent to mention that two years ago the huge fire spread in such type of exhibition has created panic in the locality besides the lives have several innocent were put at risk besides the property worth lakhs have been gutted. Keeping in mind the previous devastating fire incident, organizing of such events at the same place would be foolish step that too without permission.
