Omar Abdullah said on the decision of government jobs in Madhya Pradesh: no surprise

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah questioned the different scale of jobs in different regions of India in view of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh’s announcement that government jobs in Madhya Pradesh should be reserved for locals only.

In a tweet, Abdullah said that jobs in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are for everyone, but jobs in Madhya Pradesh are ‘only for the people of the state’. He said that there is nothing surprising in it.

Commenting on the issue, Iltija Mufti, the daughter of PDP President Mehbooba Mufti, said that states like Nagaland and Madhya Pradesh are moving towards semi-autonomous status only for the rights of the local people, but Jammu and Kashmir are ‘constitutionally met with Rights were taken away because it is Muslim majority.

Iltija wrote it on her mother’s tweeter handle. Since last year when Mehbooba Mufti was detained, she has been running this account. The tweet said, “BJP has no place for minorities in India and Jinnah’s two-nation theory is proving right.”

Earlier in the day, Chauhan had said that necessary legal provisions will be made to ensure that only local people get government jobs in Madhya Pradesh. He also said that the resources of the state are for the people of the state.
