Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Supremo Mayawati on hailed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led Union Government for scrapping Article 370 and bifurcating the Jammu and Kashmir into two separate Union Territories, one Jammu & Kashmir, while the other one is Ladakh.
Taking to Twitter, Mayawati said, ‘The Demand for revoking the article 370 and Article 35A that gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir and implementing the social, economic and political justice motive of Constitution was pending for very long, BSP now expects that people residing in there will be benefited from Centre’s decision’.
In another tweet, she lauded the Central government for carving out Leh-Ladakh as separate Union Territory.
‘Similarly, with the declaration of Leh-Ladakh of Jammu and Kashmir as a separate centrally administered region, the very old demand of the people of the Buddhist community is now complete, which is also welcomed by the BSP. With this, the Buddhist followers of Baba Saheb, Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar are particularly happy throughout the country’, She said in a tweet.
इसी प्रकार, जम्मू-कश्मीर के लेह-लद्दाख को अलग से केन्द्र शासित क्षेत्र घोषित किए जाने से ख़ासकर वहाँ के बौद्ध समुदाय के लोगों की बहुत पुरानी माँग अब पूरी हुई है, जिसका भी बीएसपी स्वागत करती है। इससे पूरे देश में विशेषकर बाबा साहेब डा. भीमराव अम्बेडकर के बौद्ध अनुयाई काफी खुश हैं।
