Rana For Regional Autonomy To The Three Regions12 June, 2018, By Cross Town News
Jammu, June 11: National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana tsaid that regional autonomy to the three regions of the state was the only way forward to end the growing sense of discrimination and alienation.
He said that National Conference has all along been endeavouring for bring a lasting peace in the state, but the centre too must walk a step with open mind. He said autonomy coupled with regional autonomy will be an effective counter to both talking about secession and trifurcation of the state on regional lines.
Rana expressed concern over attempts of dividing people of Jammu & Kashmir on regional and communal lines, saying this does not augur well for the unity of the state. He said the autonomy resolution passed by state legislature is pending with the centre and since there was no forward movement on that document, the issue of regional autonomy could not be taken to its logical conclusion.
The MLA said that regional autonomy together with well structured district councils will end the sense of deprivation and allegations of discrimination. Describing PDP-BJP coalition a total failure he said that governance appears too mild a comment for non-performance on all the fronts.
