Constitution of India parameters, the right of local population for land
ownership, Industries and jobs and there is no need for any person to worry on
that account,” the BJP’s chief spokesperson in Jammu and Kashmir, Sunil

“safest political hands” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home

misinformation” by vested elements.
applicability of the Constitution to Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir in
toto and consequential abolition of discriminatory Art 370 and Art 35A as also
erstwhile state Constitution is the biggest constitutional change since
Independence and this huge development has taken place to give justice and
equality to all Indians, including residents of Jammu Kashmir, and Ladakh.
“This development is bringing and ensuring all round development and
equality in all regions of Jammu and Kashmir,” Sethi said.

permits protection of local population and various states and Union Territories
have made laws and regulations for saving interest of local population, while
keeping rights of national population intact, he said.
