The PMAY plan is intended just for those who currently live in Jammu and Kashmir but don’t own any property. “LG had already clarified that no outsider will be settled in the pretext of PMAY scheme,” the report said.
On July 16 in Srinagar, BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh blasted the National Conference and the Peoples Democratic Party for stirring the people of Jammu and Kashmir over the subject of providing land to the landless as part of the PMAY Scheme, which was just announced by Lieutenant Governor J&K Manoj Sinha.
According to a BJP leader, the Lieutenant Governor has already made it clear that the PMAY plan is intended only for J&K residents who lack access to suitable land on which to build homes, and that no foreigners would be relocated under this guise.
When Article 370 was repealed, it was especially devastating to the National Congress and the People’s Democratic Party. Their hypocrisy and the wrongs they committed against the people of J&K over the years have now caught up with them. Now, whatever good the LG government is doing is troubling for Muftis and Abdullahs who want to excite the people of J&K on flimsy grounds, Chugh remarked.
He said that the poor and powerless in the UT had suffered much because the NC, PDP, and other parties in power had turned a deaf ear to their cries for help.
Both the National Coalition and the People’s Democratic Party openly appropriated government property throughout their respective administrations. But the administration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which is clean of corruption, has chosen to provide 5 Marlas of land to those landless people who don’t even have a shelter to live in,” he remarked.
How daringly Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti are stirring up public outrage over nothing. Those who have stolen hundreds of thousands of Kanals of public land while in office have no business criticising initiatives that benefit the general populace. The era in which such politicians saw public property as sacred and off-limits to the populace has passed. He said, “This is PM Narendra Modi’s administration, and its goal is to rehabilitate and empower the destitute.
