Expressing serious concern over the plans of the Raj Bhavan to oversimplify issuance of Permanent Resident Certificates in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairman Muhammad Yasin Khan on Monday said such development was nothing but part of “larger conspiracy” against the special status of the state.
In a statement, Khan who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation said, “Issuance of PRC shouldn’t be confused with the grant of basic facilities like bjili, sadak and paani” to the people.
“PRC cannot be seen through the prism of Public Service Guarantee Act, as the State Subject is the precious document which if issued hurriedly can only lead to further erosion of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir,” Khan said.
“If the government goes ahead with the conspiracy to oversimplify issuance of PRC we will be left with no options but to take to streets as there cannot be any compromise on the special status of J&K,” he said.He asked the Raj Bhavan to issue formal orders to stop any move aimed at weakening the issuance of PRC.
He appealed the people of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh to be united for this collective cause.
