JAMMU: On the seventh death anniversary of 2008 Land row Agitation Martyr Kuldeep Verma, the State unit of BJP organized ‘Shradanjali Sabha’ at party headquarters, wherein havan was performed and later portrait of Kuldeep Verma was garlanded and tributes were paid by party leaders and family members of the martyr. The party also remembered and paid tributes to over a dozen other people who got martyrdom during the said agitation.

This Shradanjali Sabha was held under BJP State Vice President & Jammu West MLA Sat Sharma CA and attended by other Office bearers and senior leaders. Sat Sharma, on this occasion, said that it was due to the sacrifice of Kuldeep Verma which gave a new turn to 2008 agitation and  brought the people of entire Jammu province together irrespective of their caste and creed. It was a historical agitation which displayed the unity of the people and the entire world witnessed the same with appreciation.  

State Vice-President Usha Choudhary said that the women across the Jammu province participated in large numbers in this agitation to make it successful, which indicated that women are no less than men in any field.   State General Secretary Munish Sharma, while paying the tributes,  regretted that despite seven years after agitation, the agreement reached between Sangarsh Samiti and the government has not been implemented in letter and spirit, which is very unfortunate. He appealed the government to take up the matter on priority so that the people who were implicated in false cases are not made to suffer any more.

Shilpi Verma, the widow of Kuldeep Verma, recalled the entire drama being played by the police on the behest of some high ups in the then government adding that even the dead body was dis-honoured and not  allowed  for last rites, which itself spoke the misconduct of the administration to further harass the already bereaved family.

  • High-level team headed by Law Minister visiting Bangalore, Hyderabad to study NLISU, NALSAR models

SRINAGAR: The State Government has decided to setup a National Law University in Jammu and Kashmir on the pattern of NLISU Bangalore and NALSAR Hyderabad. In this connection a high-level state delegation led by Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs, Syed Basharat Bukhari today left for Bangalore and Hyderabad to appraise in person the NLISU and NALSAR models to be adopted for proposed Law University in J&K.

The Minister is accompanied by senior officers of the State’s Law Department including Law Secretary, Mr Mohammad Ashraf Mir.

“We have set out on this ambitious project of having a National Law University in J&K on the initiative of the Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed,” Mr Bukhari said and added that the State team headed by him would be visiting NLISU Bangalore and NALSAR Hyderabad to see, in person, the functioning of these prestigious institutions and how an institution of similar repute can be established in J&K.

He said the purpose of their visit is to go through the academic courses offered NLISU and NALSAR, the requirement of faculty, the management and other vital issues involved in establishing such an institution in J&K.

Mr Bukhari said that most of the states in the country including New Delhi, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, West Bengal and Madhya Pradesh have already established National Law Universities and given the keen interest evinced by the students from J&K to pursue advanced courses in legal sciences and research, mostly outside the State, there is a pressing demand for setting up a National Law University in J&K.

The Minister said that besides undergraduate and post-graduate courses, the proposed Law University in J&K would also offer doctorate in law. There would be also super-specialized courses in Business Law, Corporate Governance, Human Rights, Medical Law, Disability Law, Environmental Law, Cyber Law and IP Law, he said.

He said the development of niche areas would be facilitated through centres focusing on specific subjects to allow students to pursue specific interests, while at the same time creating a rich and diverse human resource base, within the State, in the intended areas. He said while the admission to proposed Law University in J&K would be done through a national level entrance test, however, there would be reserved seats for the students from the State, which would be purely on merit basis.
