BJP welcomes ‘domicile grant’ to J&K women married outside | India News – Times of India

JAMMU: Welcoming the decision of domicile grant to native women married outside the J&K Union Territory, Jammu and Kashmir BJP on Wednesday attacked previous regimes and said that wrongs committed by previous governments are undone.
Launching a scathing attack, J&K BJP president Ravinder Raina in a press conference said, “NC, PDP, Congress had been selling dreams of all sorts to people of J&K since the past so many decades.”
“And it was ironic to see that secessionist leaders who had married women from outside the country including Pakistan had ensured state subject rights and status for them.”
Flanked by former Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta, General Secretary and Former State Minister Sunil Sharma, former Minister Priya Sethi and Spokesperson R S Pathania, Mr Raina said, “Daughters of J&K who were marrying people within India but outside J&K were losing all the rights in J&K previously.”
“Nonetheless, with the enactment of J&K reorganisation Act, the idea of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshshat Bharat’ has been put into play,” J&K BJP Chief said.

“And all such anti-women, anti-youth, anti-people laws and arrangements have been put beneath the carpet. Although as per the existing arrangements some categories of people have been seek Domicile Status subject to fulfillment of certain conditions.”
Further Mr Raina said, “It is in the same vein that another progressive law has come into play. “The families of women marrying outside have been made eligible for domicile status,” he said, adding that this marks another milestone post Aug 5, 2019 in J&K history.
Mr Raina also expressed his sincerest thanks to the Central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well the UT dispensation led by LG Manoj Sinha.
Union Cabinet in 2020 had approved the Jammu & Kashmir (Adaptation of State Laws) Second Order, 2020 issued under section 96 of Jammu & Kashmir Re-organization Act, 2019.
Now new amendments have been announced through an Official order stating that the spouse of a domicile certificate holder can get the certificate upon submission of certain documents, as a new clause has been added under the J&K Grant of Domicile Certificate (Procedure) Rules, 2020.
