Call all-party meeting on reorganisation of JK: JKNPP to PM
Jammu: Batting strongly for reorganisation of the state, Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party today urged the Prime Minister to call an all-party meeting to take a decision on the issue.
Under the reorganisation plan, JKNPP Chairman Bhim Singh said that there would be separate legislatures, budgets, planning wings, administrative and financial units each for Jammu, Ladakh and Kashmir.
"We urge the Prime Minister to call an urgent meeting of all political parties operating in Jammu and Kashmir to take hard decisions on the issues relating to the state so that peace returns," he told reporters here.
He said that there is a need to connect Kishtwar and Poonch and other neglected areas of Jammu region by rail.
There is also a need to develop tourist resort in Kishtwar, Bhadarwah, Seoj Dhar, Panchari, Budda Amarnath, Kotrunka, he said.
To provide work and job to thousands of unemployed youth there lies a need for industrialisation in the state, he said.
He said that movement across the LoC should be made obligatory by the use of passport without visa which is the only solution to make the LOC irrelevant.
A special meeting of the several political groups and members of the civil society held in Jammu has resolved to constitute a "Reorganisation Coordination Committee" which will supervise and implement the programme. The committee shall be announced in the few days, he said.
