Shutdown in Pulwama against arrest of youth
Srinagar, In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu Muslim Front has said that non-state subjects are being settled across Jammu which has affected the local population particularly the trader community badly.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the President of Jammu Muslim Front, Qazi Imran in a statement in Jammu said that people from Nepal were being settled near Bagh-e-Bahu in Jammu.
“The settlement is known as Gorkha Nagar where thousands of Nepalese live. Government is silent on the issue. The fact is that hundreds of non-locals
have managed to own ‘Benami Property’. A conspiracy is being hatched to settle non-locals in Jammu,” he said.
He urged the puppet authorities to undertake a survey and identify the non-state subjects who have been allotted various dwelling units and take action against them.
