@sanjaytickoo @ReclaimTemples @SaveTemplesBH @LostTemple7 @JammuKashmirNow @TheIndianTemple @SulagnaDash6 @gollakmahapatra @AhmAsmiYodha @Ind4Ever @Amisri4 #Kashmir is land of Kashyap Rishi, 1 of 7rishis mentioned in Rigveda. Anantnag is land of Shesha Naga, king of Nagas. Srinagar was called as Surya (Sun) Nagar. Baramulla named on Baraha Abatar of Vishnu. Kashmir was a Hindu Land. Just 100 years of Radical Islam destroyed all.

A historical wrong has been corrected!

Welcome my brethren from #Kashmir to a world of peace, progress and prosperity!
So now with #Artcle370Scrapped, the article 35A is moot and doesn’t stand.

There will be 2 new Union Territories -
Ladakh (with no legislature)
Jammu & Kashmir (with legislature)
#Ladakh has a very sparse population and hence will be an overkill to have a CM along with a Lieutenant General. It will be governed by the centre like Dadra Nagar, Daman Diu etc.

Social media claiming about possible trifurcation of #JammuKashmir into Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh region

Important to know that #Pakistan did that way back in 1949 when it divided the occupied parts of #Jammu & #Kashmir into so-called "Azad Jammu and Kashmir" & Gilgit–Baltistan
After India-China war, Pakistan took one step more

Shaksgam tract an area of more than 2,700 sq mi along the northeastern border of occupied Gilgit–Baltistan, was ceded by Pakistan to China in 1963

Now it is part of China's Xinjiang Uygur region.
#Jammu and #Kashmir is just an occupied piece of land for Pakistan

It gifted parts of the state to China in order to internationalize and complicate any future mediation

Article 257 of the Pakistani Constitution of 1973 clearly exposes the hypocrisy and stupidity of Pakistan

Continuing my thread.

#Jammu & #Ladakh always received unfair behaviour due to #KASHMIR.

Total 88 seats:
Kashmir has 47 seats
Jammu 37 seats
Ladakh has only 4

Parties need 44 seats to be in majority in #JammuKashmir. Kashmir has around 98% #Muslim population.

For the last 30 years, no other party other than @JKNC_ or @jkpdp has been able to form Govts here.

NC is a proprietary of the Abdullahs while PDP is that of the Mufti family.

They concentrate on 46 seats which is in #Muslim majority areas and hence end up having a majority.
#ModiSarkar realized the core issue & are working towards making sure #Jammu & #Ladakh have more seats thereby ending the unfair dominance of #Kashmir which has become a sole proprietary of the Abdullahs & the Muftis.

Ofcourse, NC & Pdp are hellbent to stop it from happening.

On 16th March 1846, after the British annexed Punjab, they handed over the mountainous territory to the North of Punjab to Raja Gulab Singh. #Dogra Cheiftain Raja Gulab Singh paid the war indemnity owed by Lahore Court to the British in return.
#TreatyOfAmritsar #DograHistory
#MaharajaGulabSingh and his Dogra Generals like General Zorawar Singh, Gen Baj Singh, ADC Mehta Basti Ram extended the Dogra Sovereignty up to the Pamirs and Tibet.
The consolidation of territories which later became the State of Jammu Kashmir began under Dogra Maharaja Gulab Singh, and was held together and governed ably by the Dogra Dynasty up until 1947.

@BloombergQuint Yet another superficial analysis on #JammuKashmir. Experts who make the glib argument that people are frustrated and therefore taking to violence have not bothered to study any data. Here are some numbers (incl RBI data!) - how #JammuKashmir compares with the rest of India.
@BloombergQuint 1) India has far higher social spending in #JammuKashmir than rest of the country. Here are the RBI data on per capita spending on #health #education and overall #Development spending.
@BloombergQuint 2) #JammuKashmir has far more health infrastructure than rest of the country. This also translates into significantly better health outcomes as measured by indicators such as infant mortality and life expectancy. #KnowIndia
