Jammu: Alleging that a regional
discrimination is being perpetrated against Jammu and Ladakh
regions by the Indian government, BJP on Tuesday called for
immediate rectification of the policy.

"We warned the Government of India about the
repercussions on unity and integrity of J&K if early steps
were not taken to rectify the regional discrimination against
Jammu and Ladakh ", BJP Legislative Party Leader and former
Union Minister Chaman Lal Gupta told reporters here on Tuesday.

The BJP leader questioned the leadership of the
Congress that why Jammu, having almost the double of the
geographical area and almost equal number of electorates, has
been given far less number of assembly seats than that of
Kashmir valley?

Above this glaring injustice, why an embargo has been
put that there would be no delimitation of assembly
constituencies till 2026, although there is no such a ban in
the rest of the country, he said and added that the Congress
is ignoring all their election promises.
