Jammu: Strongly favouring the reorganisation of Jammu and Kashmir, JKNPP on Sunday claimed that there was a huge support for the plan from the people of border districts. “We have got massive response and support to the movement of re-organisation of Jammu and Kashmir started by the party in border areas,” President of Implementation Committee for Re-organisation of J&K State, Bansi Lal Sharma said. Sharma said, “During the two-week campaign on the issue in border belt of R S Pura, Pargwal, Akhnoor, Suchetgarh, Khour, Ramgarh, Bishnah, Vijaypur, Samba, we have got tremendous response.” The people of these areas also favoured re-organisation of the state with separate legislatures, budgets, administrative and financial units for Jammu, Ladakh and Kashmir as solution to the entire issue of J&K, the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) leader said. “This new formula of re-organisation of J&K is a win-win situation for the stakeholders of J&K and the only solution of JK issue,” JKNPP leader said. He said that the party will launch the second leg of the campaign in Jammu from July 25 to educate, motivate and seek support of the people. Terming the union of Jammu and Kashmir as “unnatural”, he said, “Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir have nothing in common in terms of culture, life-style, language, geographical area and historic identity.” So, the JKNPP has given a new formula for re-organisation of the state, he said. “It will ensure end of inter-regional discrimination, equal development and will also strengthen communal harmony and regional cooperation,” he said.
