It was a part of India historically, culturally and politically always. However, because of a sinister design, some antinational elements have been trying to give the issue of accession a negative colour in order to suit their ulterior motives.
Kashmir Bachao Manch Haryana who organised a series of public programmes at Karnal, Kaithal, Gurgaon, Faridabad , Panipat and Yamunanagar in the state over the last five days.sn The pubic programmes and seminars were organized in connection with the Accession Day of Jammu and Kashmir being organized throughout the length and breadth of the country this week.

Air Marshal Ranjeet Singh Bedi, Vijay Setia, prominent exporter, Darshan Lal, President of Sarswati Nadi Shodh Sansthan, Prof. Sripal, Dr. Gopal Krishna, eminent educationists and Major Gurdeep Singh were the other personalities who attended these functions at various places.
Ashwani Chrungoo, in his address said the accession of Jammu and Kashmir has taken place in the same manner in which it has taken place in case of other princely ruled states of India in 1947. We need to understand that the Jammu and Kashmir state has always been the ‘cynosure’ for the State of Pakistan which made all attempts in the past to create trouble in J&K state. Article 370 of the Indian Constitution has proved to be the constitutional bedrock of secessionism and terrorism in Kashmir . The demands like autonomy, self-rule, dual currency and withdrawal of AFSPA from the state are fundamentally the product of the politics of Muslim majoritarianism and precedence in the Jammu and Kashmir state.
He said that the recent appointment of the Interlocutors for Jammu and Kashmir has made the situation more complicated because of their unwarranted statements on the status of Jammu and Kashmir . This nation cannot accept the theory of Pakistan that Kashmir was an issue of unfinished agenda of partition of India and therefore we out rightly reject this belief. Pakistan under a new strategy to create trouble has instigated and supported the people who involved themselves in stone pelting incidents in Kashmir .
This is one more instance of political blackmail on the part of the separatists supported by the so-called human rights activists and intellectuals of India . We treat the accession and merger of the State as full, final and irrevocable. The constitution of India and the constitution of Jammu and Kashmir also treat Jammu and Kashmir State as an inseparable part of India,Ashwani said.
He also made references to the exodus and ethnic cleansing of Kashmir Pandits from their homeland in Kashmir due to Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism. He mentioned about their plight and their living as refugees in their own country for the last two decades. He mentioned about the geo-political aspirations of the displaced community and said that India needs to be reestablished in Kashmir where there will be free flow of Indian constitution under the new dispensation.
The other speakers in their speeches said that the whole nation stands by the patriotic people of Jammu and Kashmir . Kashmir has always been in our hearts and soul and there is no question of any compromise on this subject. They cautioned the government of India to desist from any misadventure in Kashmir and instead should deal firmly with the situation concerning the security, unity and integrity of the nation. A special reference to the struggle of the displaced people from Jammu and Kashmir was also made in the functions through out. What we need today is one more Amarnath Agitation type of a movement which can safeguard our national interests in Jammu and Kashmir state. India has defeated Pakistan several times in wars in the past and we need to teach Pakistan a final lesson this time.
