Speaking with the media, Ankur Sharma said, “today is the black day in the history of J&K, and this black day is being observed in all the ten districts of Jammu. The Central Government has called for restoring the democratic process in J&K but has left Jammu out from the exercise. The gang, which was labeled as Anti-National by the Central Government, has received the invitation, and by talking with them, the Central Government will decide the future of J&K”.

“The Central Government has made a contract with Kashmiri Parties, and that’s why they haven’t invited any party from Jammu; otherwise, they can’t execute their contract. They have not only done partiality with Jammu, but they have sold Jammu. Ek Jutt Jammu will fight for separate statehood”, Ankur added.
