J&K Youth sought land, job security with Rahul during BJY: Rajni


Tawi, Dec 17: All India Congress Committee (AICC) In-charge, J&K affairs, Rajni Patil on Sunday said that the state party unit's big political initiative to seek safeguards for the land and jobs besides natural resources and other identities of the people shall be taken up with AICC for fulfilling the aspirations of the public.

“The demand of people that they need certain safeguards and protections to their land, jobs, other like identities and aspirations within the Constitution needs to be considered,” Patil told media persons on the sidelines of a convention of DCC Jammu urban here.

She said, “People had forcefully raised this to Rahul Gandhi also during the entire Bharat Jodo Yatra in J&K. Our Constitution is quite flexible to accommodate the divergent aspirations and demands of the vast country which is full of diversities, which is our strength.”

She quoted examples of North Eastern States and several other states including neighbouring Himachal Pradesh as per 371 of the Constitution.

She said history is a witness that “every pride hath a fall” and referred to the example of Ravana in this regard, taking dig at the top BJP leaders. “They are on the top of the after recent (election) results,” Patel said, while reminding them that Congress has got 4.91 crore votes against 4.81 crores secured by BJP in the recent assembly polls. This shows the Congress is a strong force all over the country including J&K.

Earlier, addressing workers, she reiterated the demand to implement the 33 percent reservation to women, from this assembly election, if the BJP government is sincere, as delimitation has already taken place in J&K.

She said had the Modi government been truly sincere, it could have implemented women reservation for the coming but it has been delayed beyond 2029, which is an injustice to half of the population.

JKPCC President Vikar Rasool Wani asked the party cadres to gear up for the ensuing elections and expose the wrong policies of the BJP which has destroyed the future of the youth and imposed huge taxes of all sorts on the people, including property tax, smart metres, toll tax and other such things.

Working President Raman Bhalla lashed out at the BJP for causing miseries to the people of all sections, especially unemployed youth, common man, farmers, traders, transporters, local contractors and others. UNI VBH SSP
