The two-month-long Jammu logjam, and land related happenings in the valley are events of much historical consequence. Definitely Jammu’s resurgence will have much to do with the shaping of future events in the state.
The news of a compromise brought relief to the beleaguered people of the region. There is no sense in suppressing the instinct of celebrating the success of the struggle.
State administration headed by the government seems to be functioning in utter panic. It panicked when a couple of thousand of people in the valley brought out protest rallies, and without a second thought the Governor rescinded the land deal order.
Now that a compromise has been reached at, again the administration seems to give in to panic. Knowing that people would deliberate the success of their agitation in a big way, the government reacted in a shoddy and crude manner so as to betray its total inexperience and inefficiency of dealing with such situations.
