National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has termed amendments to Jammu and Kashmir land ownership laws as ‘unacceptable’. The statement comes after The Ministry of home affairs (MHA)notified new laws for the Union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. As per the notification, any Indian citizen can buy land in J&K and in Ladakh. Omar Abdullah tweeted, ‘Unacceptable amendments to the land ownership laws of J&K. Even the tokenism of domicile has been done away with when purchasing non-agricultural land & transfer of agricultural land has been made easier. J&K is now up for sale & the poorer small land holding owners will suffer.’ In another tweet, Omar said, ‘Thereโ€™s much confusion about whether Ladakh has been included in the new land ownership order. I donโ€™t know what would be worse: that Ladakh has also been betrayed by the Centre or that only J&K has been put up for sale, thus betraying the centreโ€™s true intentions & bias.’
