New Delhi: BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav has urged for restoring 4G internet in Jammu and Kashmir (UT).
“It is time the state administration appreciates this and pays the people handsomely for their openness. Certain harsh measures like denial of 4G services, which were necessary under special circumstances, can now be done away with, as the state administration and security apparatus are capable of handling difficult situations. The Constitution allows for the administrative handling of units for some duration under special circumstances. Those circumstances have more or less passed in J&K. It is time the UT is allowed full-fledged political activity,” Madhav wrote in Indian Express.
Madhav said that, J&K has always been seen from either a Pakistan prism or the prism of the militants. That there are millions of ordinary people both in Jammu and in Kashmir, who are far removed from terrorism and separatism, and want to lead life as peaceful citizens of the country, does not appeal to these eminences.
“Full political integration is when the state is run by its people rather than the proverbial “steel frame”. And that conclusively conveys the message to the jackals across the border that J&K is fully and integrally India’s and the only dispute to settle is the return of PoK,” Madhav wrote in IE.
