‘I wish Ravinder Raina to be the next PM of India’: Surinder Choudhary
Former MLC Surinder Choudhary had an exclusive interview with JK Channel executive Mohinderjeet Singh. While some parties are happy with the upcoming All Party Meeting on 24th June, many have shown resentment for not getting invited.
Q. Choudhary Ji, you left your party for the public. How do you see this meeting?
I would like to congratulate Governor Sir Manoj Sinha ji who have good taken steps for Jammu and Kashmir UT. When he was new here, he met many leaders and worked on the feedback he got from us. We told him about the ‘Babu rule’ going on in J&K and finally the day has come when Delhi has called for a meeting to talk about issues.
However, I feel upset seeing the Gupkar Alliance people have also been invited. They have cleared their agenda for the meeting. They will raise the same issues about what they have spoken several times. Jammu people have often sacrificed for the Country’s welfare.
Now when the meeting arrived, BJP’s so called ‘Gupkar gang’ has been invited keeping all the Jammu parties aside. BJP has stood against it’s own words. BJP leaders have been unable to stand for Jammu’s voice. They couldn’t make make issues reach to Delhi. Ravinder Raina should remember that if people can make someone win, they can make him lose too.
Q. It’s an important day and Jammu’s issues can be solved. What do you think?
People living near border areas of Jammu comparatively have a higher number of issues, then come Western Pakistan refugees, Gujjar Bakarwal people but no representatives are in the meeting. BJP told to solve Jammu problems, vanish the discrimination, bring tourism funds and development when they came in power in 2014 but can we see them? No!
Centre couldn’t invite Jammu leaders for the meeting, how will they provide the region it’s equal right? Employment for the youth? I belong to a border constituency and I understand what happens to them during war conditions. Was BJP able to take their care in the last 7 years? Again No!
The Medical conditions in Jammu became worse when Covid-19 was on peak. In fact, the Government banned Media from entering Government Medical College. Why does the Administration do that? When it has to hide scams. The pressure and allegations were on the Hospital Administration so they took this step. LG Sir visited the Hospital and then there was a little improvement.
BJP said to take back POK. I tell you it didn’t even try for it. Just one ceasefire after 7 years that resulted in nothing. Ravinder Raina ji is attending meeting himself. This time it isn’t the matter of State or article 370 but the promises that were made with the people of Jammu region.
Water sports activities and tourism spots were promised in Jammu but what we got is just Toll Plazas! BJP said there would be no Darbar move, still Secretariat shifts every 6 months. Ignore villages for now, even cities have long power cuts. They are struggling for water. So many people were promised for pacca houses. They are still living in mud houses.
Raina is like my brother. I wish him to be the next PM of our country (smiles). But my words are just a reminder to him to raise these issue when he sits in the meeting. It’s not a terrorism case and one night you sit and end everything. It’s a political process and let it begin in the region.
Q. Is this message for only Raina Sir or everyone?
My message is for each and every person going for the meeting. The public of Jammu is mature enough to see what’s happening around. Whatever comes from Delhi should reach Jammu first and then go to Kashmir (laughs). And this not only involves Hindus but people of all religions and all the cities and villages of Jammu region.
We want a different state and security of our lands and jobs. Raina Sir already talked about this in Parliament. We heard ‘Har har Modi Ghar Ghar Modi’ but now we can only hear about wine shops these days. People are standing against the decision, our youth is getting involved in drinking and drugs. This is harmful for the upcoming generation. Also, the contractors are from outside. Same is for Jal Shakti. What benefit for J&K locals has been given after abolition of article 370? Again nothing! So the Government needs to think about all this.
I request Bar Association, Jammu’s Chamber and Jammu’s civil society to keep their egos aside and form an Alliance. If Kashmir leaders can do it why can’t we? Come up and become the voice of Jammu.
Q. Last question, Mehbooba Mufti once again remembers Pakistan. Your thoughts on that?
Talking about Mehbooba Mufti’s statement, it’s not something new. She’s always spoken about Pakistan. As I told Gupkar Alliance has an agenda and they have a hold on that. But to remember, article 370 will never be back again. So we need to keep Jammu’s rights in mind for now.
3 lakh rupees theft from a car in Jammu
A theft case was reported from a car with vehicle number PB10DH0969 from Satwari area of Jammu. The owner of the car confirmed the robbery of Rs. 3 lakhs.
“Usually I park my car inside my house. That day I just left it for 10 minutes. I went on my scooty for sometime and while returning I found my car and the cash amount missing.” Dheeraj, the car owner said
The incident has been recorded in the CCTV camera near the parking. The Police has taken over the case and investigation is under process.
“The theft cases have increase in Jammu a lot especially after becoming an UT. It’s become easier for thieves to take away things. 3 lakh isn’t a small amount. It was my hard work. The Police is investigating the matter. Hopefully the culprit will be caught soon.” He said

‘Injustice with us again’: Kashmiri Hindu Pandit Samaj on no invitation in the meeting
All Party Meeting that is getting conducted today has made some political parties happy with the invitation while on the other side has caused resentment among other people.
Kashmiri Pandit Hindu Samaj while talking to JK Media said that their representative in the meeting was a must. According to them, Government has hardly done anything for the Kashmiri Pandits community and now ignoring them during the meeting is another injustice.
“Modi Ji’s Government has made us see this day when our emotions are hurt and we see the same strategy that’s going on since last 32 years. It was an opportunity for Nationalist Forces to raise voices for their community.” said a Kashmiri Pandit
“I don’t think it’s a good decision to arrange a meeting for J&K’s reorganisation without taking opinions from Kashmiri Pandits who are a major part of the UT.” another added
Kashmiri Pandits further added that nothing after abolition of article 370 has changed. They said that Kashmir parties that forced them to leave their Motherland cannot represent them in Delhi.
“No one can feel or express the pain of Kashmiri Pandits who were exiled from their hometown and are still longing to return back. At least one representative of 5 lakh Pandits should’ve been invited.” they said
