India – Jammu & Kashmir Article 370 and Clause 35A
Attention: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah on the revocation of Article 370 and Clause 35A in Jammu Kashmir & Ladakh.
Article 370 and Clause 35A concerning the northern state Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh for many reasons prominently the special status and privileges to J&K was the bone of contention. Though there are other states in Indian Union Federation enjoying synonymous position.
Above all, more than any states and union territories the Corporate families specifically Adani and Ambanis from Gujarat have been bestowed with unlimited privileges and exclusive status allowing them massive land acquisitions by force from farmers, Adivasis or natives i.e. tribal lands, general population owned private acres across India of Adani and Ambanis choice.
As if these are not enough, PM Narendra Modi with your allegiance to your corporate financiers among others Adani and Ambanis being your close associates are granted unfettered access to national assets such as airports, railways, telecom industry, mining, defense contracts and public companies in petroleum and oil and natural gas industry.
The hostile take over of India’s prized endowments by your campaign donors Adani and Ambanis are the biggest problems more than J&K’s Article 370 and Clause 35A.
PM Narendra Modi – How about your government and political majority in Parliament banning Corporate favoritism and immediate legislation on anti-trust law prohibiting corporations monopoly in the economy and elections remaining the existential threat endangering India’s 1.3 billion population lives, livelihood and importantly the youths’ present and future?
The Corporate run government previously UPA and your tenure have transformed democratic system into oligarchy enterprise.
PM Narendra Modi – your contradictions on issues deserve national focus.
In particular, Nagaland where your government under your leadership has granted Nagaland separatists government more than desired for in their wish list – besides complete autonomy, a unique identity not barring own currency, passport (not Indian but Nagaland passport) Nagaland flag and Nagaland representation as an autonomous independent state in the United Nations while enjoying Indian taxpayers from the rest of India including the much targeted J&K Ladakh taxpayers funded defense force and foreign affairs as well as communication service.
Essentially, PM Narendra Modi your actions against J&K Ladakh contrasting Nagaland amplifies your political agenda to isolate problems with controversial and counterproductive solutions countering one and favoring the other – the Step father (सौतेला व्यवहार) treatment in many respects are neither politically astute nor viable for India’s unity and sovereignty.
However, the gender inequality in property inheritance and women’s economic status in J&K in addition to basic education to kids could have been addressed in a separate context as these are necessary for state and societal progress.
Again here, PM Narendra Modi – your empathy to J&K women akin to that extended to India’s muslim women in Triple Talaq was not even remotely expressed in Unnao rape victim’s case who is also a young woman – Indian citizen, Hindu by religion given your political party i.e Hindutva RSS backed faction claiming India as a Hindu State to protect Hindus rights and interests.
Your silence in Unnao rape involving your political party BJP member and several mob lynching incidents in comparison to your government’s expeditious legislations on Triple Talaq, J&K Article 370 and 35A confirm your selective care for citizens evidently categorized as vote banks and political opportunism.
Furthermore, your gross negligence of Indians plight en masse on women’s safety and security, youth joblessness, farmers distress, corporate violations (Adani, Ambanis…and others) draining Indian economy with your cooperation and dedicated service to them is the nuclear effect on contemporary India.
Your government denying Nagaland demands disproportionate to J&K’s Article 370 and Clause 35A would have exemplified your administration’s commitment to strengthen India’s union federation and territorial integrity similar to that implemented against Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh.
The paradoxical decisions and actions in just these two states J&K and Nagaland let alone other states sharing parallel status raise legitimate questions on tenor and credibility of legislations reflecting bipolar determinations typically designed to suit corporate and upper echelons aspirations in acquiring real estate in J&K and gerrymandering i.e. reconfiguration of political landscape and ironically obliging Nagaland separatism from India.
PM Narendra Modi – the abrogation of Article 370 and Clause 35A in J&K, the strategy adapted against Corporatism and other states in India with entitlements would demonstrate your leadership and government’s genuine goals for India as One Nation exempting none above law and legislations on all matter preserving hard fought democracy and underlying principles enshrined in constitution.
