Jammu and Kashmir: The Jammu and Kashmir administration has constituted a committee to consider the demand for declaration of a public holiday on the birth anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh, the last Dogra ruler of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, which is likely to worsen the atmosphere in the Kashmir Valley.

According to the news of the Indian Express, an order has been issued by the General Administration Department (GAD), in which it has been said to constitute a four-member committee. This committee will be headed by GAD Secretary Manoj Kumar Dwivedi. Apart from this, administrative secretaries of social welfare and culture departments will also be part of the committee. Another member will be the Jammu Divisional Commissioner.

PDP spokesperson and former MLA Firdous Tak alleged that the central government and the local administration were trying to appease a particular community, while they should have fulfilled the development promises made after the abrogation of Article 370.

He told this newspaper that the order being issued by the administration shows that Jammu and Kashmir is being run from the headquarters of BJP and RSS instead of Raj Bhavan and Civil Secretariat.

At the same time, CPI(M) leader and former MLA MY Tarigami has accused the administration of dividing the people. “There is no doubt that Maharaja Hari Singh had constitutionally handed over the state to India by signing the Instrument of Accession, but politically it was led by Sheikh Abdullah,” he said.

He said that by declaring a holiday on the birthday of Maharaja Hari Singh and not on the birthday of Sheikh Abdullah, a wrong message is being sent to the people of Kashmir.

Whereas, on the other hand, the leaders of Jammu united in support of this decision have spoken of celebrating.

It is noteworthy that the administration of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir in 2020 excluded the birthday of former Chief Minister and National Conference founder Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah (December 5) and Martyrs’ Day (July 13) from the list of public holidays.

Instead of these two holidays, the administration had declared 26 October as a public holiday. On this day in 1947, Maharaja Hari Singh signed the Instrument of Accession to hand over his state to the Indian Union.
