She attacked the BJP government for giving the country “black laws” which would dismantle the agricultural sector for the farmers, in the form of the farm bills as they have no mention of MSP or other protective measures for them. She also condemned the land laws of J&K which go against the promises of the government. She said that the Congress party opposes the new rule that allows anyone to buy land in J&K. “The children of J&K deserve these jobs, these lands and their rights”, she said. Further, she said that Congress also totally supports J&K’s demand for statehood which the government should give back.Congress leader Sudhir Sharma called the BJP the “Bhoomi Jhapto Party”, while talking about the new land laws of J&K at the campaign. He criticised the new laws for assaulting the identity, history and autonomy of the region.JKPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir also highlighted the cause of the farmers of the country, the poor and the people of J&K. He said that three new farm laws were passed by the BJP in the Parliament unconstitutionally without the consent of the people and the opposition, which pave way for looting of the destitute, and the farmers. Former Minister Yogesh Sawhney also spoke at the event and heavily criticised the Government for “their gifts to J&K and the farmers of the country”. Saying that Jammu and Kashmir has suffered ardently under the BJP, there also has been an attempt to harm both the dogra and Kashmiri Identity that J&K holds harmoniously in one fold. The BJP has done more damage than repair in J&K, said Sawhney.
