All Central Laws will be implemented in UTs of J&K, Ladakh to benefit ‘aam admi’: Jitendra

All Central Laws will be implemented in UTs of J&K, Ladakh to benefit ‘aam admi’: Jitendra

Jammu, Nov 30 (UNI) Asserting that the common man of Jammu and Kashmir (now Union Territory) was remained deprived of so many benefits since decades, Union Minister in Prime Minister’s Office Dr Jitendra Singh on Saturday said that all Central Laws will soon be implemented in the Union Territories of J&K and Ladakh in a phased manner to benefit ‘aam admi’ as Article 370 has been abrogated as a whole and not in pieces.

“The Article 370 has “gone as a whole and not in pieces” and there are 854 Central acts which need to be implemented here. We just have less than 200 of them,” Dr Singh said while addressing the gathering after inaugurating two days regional conference ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’ on the topic ‘Jal Shakti’ and Disaster Management.

“We have to make up for all the lapses of the last seven decades because of these are all laws,” he said and urged to the people to cooperate with the government in the implementation of the Central laws.

Dr Singh also maintained that Centre has taken a very important responsibility at hand and it is going to be taken forward, adding, “Centre is committed to implement all central laws in the Union territories of J&K and Ladakh and let us understand and keep reminding ourselves and those around us that the Article 370 is gone and gone forever.”

“I am saying in presence of media let each one of us understand and keep reminding ourselves and those around us that the Article 370 is gone and gone forever,” said Dr Singh categorically.

Citing various examples, he said some laws, like the Prevention of Corruption Act, have already been implemented to facilitate the settlement of corruption cases within two years and the rest are in the pipeline.

“The Lt Governor has a mandate to do so. These acts are being notified one after the other”, he said.

Dr Singh sought due cooperation from people of J&K asserting that as patriotic, right thinking and responsible citizens, it is responsibility to cooperate with the government and the Lieutenant Governor and his administration in this regard.

However, referring to the demands raised by different sections including the lawyers who are on indefinite strike since November 1 against the government’s decision to divest judicial courts of its powers to register various documents, he said, “Law in regard to powers to registry has been brought in and more will be implemented.”

“All laws are citizen friendly and we have no right to deprive the common people of J&K and Ladakh of these laws,” he added and said, “we have made the commitment because people have been deprived of the benefits of these laws just because of some vested interest elements.”

The conference was organised by the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances in collaboration with the governments of Tamil Nadu and the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

“With the abrogation of Article 370 and the creation of the two UTs”, he said, adding, “it is the resolve of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah that we have to implement here in J&K -all citizen-friendly acts which are meant to reach the last man in the queue and to liberate the lowest strata of the society from the exploitation at the hands of the vested interests.”
