CPI(M) demands immediate halt to land eviction campaign: Tarigami

Ziraat Times News Network

Jammu January 16: CPI(M) leader Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami has voiced deep concern over the government’s move of divesting the people of the land registered under various titles in revenue records across Jammu and Kashmir. The administration is totally blind towards the destruction of the livelihood of the rural poor. “Is this beginning of the process of “Acche din”? The administration is conducting false propaganda that the land is being acquired for development purposes but the facts are contrary to its claims”, he said in a statement to Ziraat Times. “It is rather unfortunate that the government has mobilized all its machinery to dispossess the poor and excluded of the land registered as Kahchairi , Shamilat and so on. The people who are living off this land have found themselves in a bind after the government’s recent order”, he added. In the name of retrieving the “state land”, the government is making desperate attempts to pauperize the people by snatching their land and creating private land banks. The move is not only bound to render thousands of people roofless, but also divest many of cultivation rights, he observed. “The government in order to digress attention from the pressing issues like unemployment have started retrieving the land of poor. The non-BJP political parties must come together to fight against the move. CPI(M) demands putting an immediate halt on forcible land acquisition and immediate withdrawal of recent order. CPI(M) appeals all shades of public opinion to unitedly raise the voice against such disastrous moves of the administration”, statement further said.
