Major Setback to NC: Devender Singh Rana, Surjit Singh Salathia Resigns from Party

Published

on

The National Conference (NC) in Jammu and Kashmir has suffered a significant setback ahead of the upcoming assembly elections. Party President Devender Singh Rana has resigned from the primary membership of the party in the Jammu division. Rana is counted among the tall leaders of the National Conference. Along with this, former minister Surjit Singh Salathia has also resigned from the party’s primary membership.

Significantly, for the last few days, the voice instead of Rana was the subject of discussion in the political corridors. Divisional President Devendra Singh Rana had also met party President Dr Farooq Abdullah and Vice President Omar Abdullah on Wednesday. In the meeting that lasted for about two hours, discussions were also held on the speculation of leaving the party and various issues. After which, Rana said that now the interests of Jammu will not be compromised. The people of Jammu want equal rights in development, employment and good governance without suppressing any sector and do not want to be buried.

Efforts have been made continuously to undermine the interests of Jammu. But people have strengthened their resolve peacefully and democratically without any discrimination of caste and religion. There is no question of compromising the interests of Jammu, whatever the consequences may be. To sideline Jammu is to insult the self-respecting people who have always stood together over the years. We are the bearers of the political philosophy of unity in diversity and one identity of Jammu and Kashmir. No one can disturb this feeling.

This is the reason why it was difficult to arrest them. Meanwhile, after the investigation proved the case, a charge sheet was presented against them in the court in 2003. The court, on 10/09/2004, issued an order of arrest against both the accused.

The Reasi police team led by SSP Reasi Shailendra Singh made an elaborate plan and laid a trap to arrest the absconding accused. The police succeeded in their strategy, and both hardcore and long-running criminals were arrested. Police officials said that evidence had been collected against both the accused, and soon both will be produced before the court.
