PAGD has alleged that BJP has the habit of starting malicious campaigns against the opponents ahead of polls in order to mislead public opinion. The timing of releasing the list allegedly involved in the Roshni Scam though J&K High Court has asked the administration to do so.
Former chief ministers Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah have been named by the Jammu and Kashmir administration in a list which alleges that their residential house in Jammu is built over illegally-possessed land, a charge denied by the Abdullah’s.
The administration of the Union Territory as directed by the Jammu and Kashmir High Court to make public land given under the controversial Roshni land scheme, since scrapped by a court, came out with the list of beneficiaries. Recently, it came out with a list of those who had allegedly encroached land other than those given under the scheme.
The list also highlighted the headquarters of their National Conference in both Srinagar and Jammu was legalized under the controversial Roshni Act.
Displaying the lists on its website one showing encroached land outside Roshni Act, the divisional administration Jammu revealed that the residential house of the Abdullah’s, built over an area of nearly an acre at Sunjwan, is encroached state land (physically encroached but not shown in revenue record) other than Roshi Act.
Reacting to the fresh list, party vice president Omar Abdullah said, “The news attributing to sources that Dr Farooq Abdullah is a beneficiary of the Roshni Act is completely false and is being spread with a malicious intent. Both his houses at Jammu and Srinagar have nothing to do with the said Act.
