    1947-Refugees are foreigners, can't be state subjects: NC

    Srinagar, Dec 26: Stating that West Pakistan Refugees (WPR) are foreigners and can't be state subject holders, Conference (NC) General Secretary and MLA Khanyar, Ali Muhammad Sagar on Monday said that the Article 370 has been made a “hollow shell”.

    Sagar said that WPRs who are being granted domicile certificates can't become state subject holders as they are foreigners.

    “We are not against WPRs. They are our brothers but the current regime can't violate the state subject law by issuing domicile certificates to them,” he said.

    He said that Article 370, which gives special status to the state, has been made hollow.

    “Several mainstream political leaders are claiming to safeguard Article 370 but on ground they have failed to do so. The Article 370 has already been made hollow,” Sagar told KNS.

    The MLA Khanyar said that the huge attendance in funeral processions of militants in Valley must be taken under consideration. “The huge presence of people in funeral processions of militants clearly indicate the sentiments of people, which must be addressed politically,” he said.

    He said that his party leaders met with the present Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and urged him to address the Kashmir issue politically.

    “PM Modi assured us about it but on ground they failed to address the Kashmir issue. Instead of addressing that issue politically, they raised several anti-people issues so far including SARFAESI Act, Sainik Colony, Pandit Colony, State Subject issue and others,” Sagar.

    He said that state and Kashmir needs political solution and the government in power at Centre as well as in the State must take steps to address the issue.

    Taking a dig at Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, Sagar said that Mehbooba was making hue and cry over the arrest of people in their tenure but in the last five months of uprising, she has crossed all the limits of cruelty.

    “At least 12,500 youth were arrested and several people were blinded while nearly 800 people were booked under Public Safety ACT (PSA). Besides, the people were not even allowed to celebrate Eid as the government had imposed restrictions on that day,” he added.

    He said that the government must release the youth who have been left languishing in different jails across the Valley.
