Jammu : An extra ordinary meeting of the Working Committee of Dogra Sadar Sabha J&K was convened today the 28th of September, 2016 under the Chairmanship of its President, former Minister Th. Gulchain Singh Charak.
The meeting started by paying rich tributes to the martyrs of 18th September, 2016 Uri incident. The members of working committee reviewed the present law and order situation in the State in detail and expressed their concern about the situation prevailing in the valley. They stressed for immediate steps to restore the law and order at the earliest as the deadlock has badly affected the economy of the State. If the trend is not arrested and normalcy not restored immediately the people of the State shall face lot of hardships.
Besides this, various organizational and developmental issues also came under discussion. The meeting collectively resolved to project that:-
Ø A heart rendering Shradhanjali was paid to the 18 martyrs of the cowardly Pakistan sponsored terrorist attack on the unarmed sleeping soldiers, without any provocation.
Ø The committee strongly recommended an immediate release of the Ex-Gratia relief to the families of the Uri martyrs, clearing of all pending Ex-Gratia cases at par with other states and release of sanctioned but pending routine annuity amounts to the war widows and the brave warriors.
Ø The members condemned Pakistan in strong words and demanded stern action and immediate abrogation of the Indus Water Treaty.
Ø The committee noted with great concern that even after the assurance of the Chief Minister Ms Mehbooba Mufti as the Chairperson of the Jammu Mubarak Mandi Heritage Society, nothing has moved on the ground. The condition of the dilapidated buildings is further deteriorating with each flash of rains. Members demanded for its immediate opening to the general public and the tourists to get glimpses of the vanishing treasure of this heritage.
Ø The committee requested for reassured and foolproof security arrangements for the conduct of pilgrimages in the Jammu region.
Ø The committee welcomed the vacancies announced for employment of youth in the state but demanded an equal share of these in all three regions, so that the law abiding nationalist population does not feel robbed of their opportunities for being gentle and good.
Ø Further, the committee demanded fair compensation for the losses suffered by the Jammu region in trade and industry, hotels, tourism and transport due to the turmoil in the Valley. The package to compensate the losses, if/when released by the central government should be equally and fairly passed on to all three regions proportionately.
Ø Lastly, the committee appealed to all sections of society in all three regions to stay calm and maintain communal harmony at all costs and rise above the petty differences being instigated by anti-national elements.
