‘Jammu is the door to Delhi and Kashmir’: Devender Rana

Published

on

Devender Singh Rana, a senior leader of National Congress had an exclusive interview with JK Media executive Ashish Kohli. He talked about the upcoming All Party Meeting on 24th June in Delhi.

Q. We’ve heard Mehbooba Mufti and Farooq Abdullah will attend the meeting. How do you see the meeting and do you think Jammu’s voice would be raised there?

Democracy works by people and it’s basic element is conversation. I believe conversations demolish all the controversies. The party meeting has been kept to discuss important issues and I think PM Modi would have taken this decision after thinking something.

Our party has always worked for upgrading democracy levels in Jammu and Kashmir. The meeting is kept for the betterment of J&K and it’s public. According to me, this shouldn’t be taken as an ego battle.

Q. Why did you use the words ‘ego battle’? Do you also think it’s an injustice that many Kashmiri leaders have been invited while Jammu leaders haven’t been?

I don’t want to speak on this because from our side Abdullah Sir is going for the meeting. He’s going to raise voice for Kashmir as well as Jammu there. No compromise on Jammu’s part will be accepted.

Does an invitation describe your representative character? I haven’t been invited for the meeting still I didn’t raise any issue about that. Let the conversations continue especially when they are beneficial for our place.

Q. Any points you’ve thought about the meeting?

Farooq Sir will be from our side. I have collected points for raising our issues but those will come out tomorrow by Sir in the meeting. I again say that no compromise would be accepted on Jammu’s behalf.

Q. Your party was involved in Gupkar gang and now you’ve been invited for the meeting. What is going on?

We are a mainstream party. Sometimes there are controversies, sometimes conversations and now this is an initiative for something new. I think when PM Modi is trying to start an inclusive politics, no one should try to stop it.

But yes I’m saying this, if any decision is taken against Jammu’s interest then we’ll stand for our right.

Q. Talks about Jammu being a separate state are going on. Your views on that?

I’m totally against it. Jammu division isn’t ours. Jammu is of Dogras. Raja Zoravar Singh raised J&K flag at Tibet. We cannot forget sacrifices of Dogra leaders who fought for us. Talks may be from anywhere but the decision will be in Jammu’s favour.

Delhi knows the door to Kashmir is Jammu and Kashmir too knows that the door to Delhi is Jammu. Dogra respect means Jammu and Kashmir. An UT isn’t what we want. We all want State government. Believe me, the baddest State Government rule can overpower the best Governor rule.

“Director Sir told us to give our exams and wait for results. We are against it! We either demand online exams or mass promotion. When Kashmir students can get promoted without exams, why not us?” said a student

“I’m here to support these students. Their demand is genuine. They had online classes. Third wave is on it’s way and we can’t risk students’ lives. JK Board Authorities must listen to their appeal.” added their supporter

The students claimed the J&K Police to have abused and physically attacked them. They disagreed with the behaviour and said it was against the law and order.

“It’s J&K Police not the goons that attacked us today. I’m still 16 and it’s against the law to hit me. We aren’t terrorists, just small kids demanding something for ourselves. At least don’t hit us.” they said

We have also informed the police officers in the PCR van for round-up they also didn’t take any action. So the police didn’t investigate our cases seriously”, a truck operator said.

The operators demanded that an investigation should take place and the thieves should be arrested immediately.

According to them, the boy was innocent and didn’t have any personal grudges. However, the dead body’s torn clothes and broken bones have proved it to be a murder.

“It was morning when my son went for a haircut. Someone informed me about his death in the evening. While I rushed to the place, I saw around 200 people around the dead body. It’s a murder and we want justice.” said the boy’s father

“It’s a forestry area where hardly people are seen. How did the boy reach there? He was first killed and then thrown from a height. The Police hasn’t helped us yet. In fact, they told us to compromise. This is beyond limits.” added another

The family has demanded justice and requested Jammu and Kashmir Police to investigate the matter. “Police must check the call records of the boy’s phone and find the culprit. We want the murderer to be sentenced to death.” they said
