Miscarriage of history undone after 7 decades: Jitendra

Jammu, May 19: Describing the Jammu and Kashmir Domicile Rules Notification as the dawn of a new era for Jammu and Kashmir, Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said that history will vindicate us and prove that this course correction was in keeping with the principle of equality and the norms of a healthy democracy.

“A serious miscarriage of history had been undone after 70 years by the Jammu and Kashmir Domicile Rules Notification,” Dr Singh said while addressing the media at the national capital.

He said that it was an anomaly waiting to be corrected and perhaps it was God’s will that it should get corrected only when Narendra Modi takes over as the Prime Minister of India.

He also complimented Home Minister Amit Shah for the clarity with which the entire exercise has been carried out.

Dr Singh noted that three generations of people in Jammu and Kashmir had been denied the right to live with justice and dignity, and it was heartening to see this redemption happening in our lifetime, which would prove to be a blessing for the future generations.
