Massive assault on people's rights: Gupkar Alliance

October 28, 2020

While condemning the repeal of J&K land laws, the People�s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration on Tuesday termed the move by the Centre as �huge betrayal� and �massive assault� on the rights of people of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.

�This is a massive assault on the rights of the people of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh and grossly unconstitutional. The Alliance has vowed to fight the anti Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh measure on all fronts,� he said.

Lone said the repeal of Big Estates Abolition Act � first ever agrarian reform in the subcontinent, was an �insult� to the sacrifices of thousands of freedom fighters and farmers who fought against an autocratic and oppressive rule and a �crude attempt to rewrite history.�

The latest order related to change in land laws made in exercise of powers under J&K Re organization Act-2019 was yet another �brazen violation� of the principle of constitutional propriety of fundamental importance to a constitutional democracy, the statement said.

It said with a serious challenge to the 5 August 2019 decisions before the top Constitutional Court of the country and the vires of the Re-organisation Act under judicial scrutiny, the Central Government was under an obligation to �desist� from such acts, out of respect for the apex court.
