JAMMU: Senior RSS leader, its national Working Committee member and patron, Muslim Rashtriya Manch, Indresh Kumar while allaying the fears of Gujjars and Bakerwals in the J&K, said that they should get the ownership rights on the land possessed by them.
Addressing a seminar here, organised by Gujjar Desh Charitable Trust Indresh Kumar strongly advocated for amendment in Forest law to ensure proper security to them.
Terming Gujjars and Bakerwals the patriotic people by core he said they have never tolerated enemies of this nation and took on with them with full might to frustrate their designs right form 1947.
Hitting out at Gupkar Gang, the RSS leader accused them of misleading the people of J&K on the name of new land laws. "The leaders of Gupkar Gang are not the well wishers of J&K people but their worst enemies", he added.
He said these people never thought of the welfare of Gujjars and Bakerwals during last 70 years and deprived them of their rights till date. It was only with the efforts of the then Vajpayee Government and present Narendra Modi Government that they were given ST status and their rights were safeguarded.
Indresh Kumar said it is BJP which gave this community realization of its rights and now the time is not far away when these people will get rid of all their worries and problems.
While turning tables on Gupkar Gang for spreading canards and misleading people on new land laws, he said this law has secured the rights of the people of J&K. The 90 percent land can neither be sold by any body nor any outsider from J&K can purchase it, he added.
He said it is only barren land which can be sold and rest land will remain with its owners and no body can forcefully purchase it from the people. The people can even get highest rate for barren land which will add to their resources. This land can be utilised for construction of hospitals, schools, other business establishments and if employment generation units will open it will bring prosperity to the people, he added.
He said this law will provide jobs to the local people and also boost the education and those who mislead the people on the name of new land law are not well wishers of the masses
but their worst enemies. He appealed the people not to fall in the trap of these leaders. He, while advocating for the rights of Gujjars and Bakerwals on their land said that they should raise their voice for the same and "I am confident that BJP will fully support this demand".
He also made an appeal to J&K and Central Government in this regard that the rights of this community be safeguarded fully.
He also demanded that on pattern of Ladakh Scouts Gujjar Bakerwal Scouts should also be formed which will provide employment to these people.
On the occasion National Gujjar Bakerwal leaders urged the Pakistan to vacate PoJK immediately. This community in safeguarding the countries borders never compromised on security issues and even made many sacrifices for this cause, they said.
On the occasion the slogans Pak should vacate PoJK, Baltistan and Gilgit rent the air.
Indresh Kumar said Prime Minister and Home Minister want the upliftment and welfare of these people so that they should not lag behind in progress and development than any community.
On the occasion International Gujjar Sabha president Col (retd) Dev Anand Gujjar, MP and representative of Gujjars Ramdev Vidrohi and J&K Gujjar Sabha chief, Chowdhary Mohamed Chizi and convener, Shazia and many other leaders were also present.
