Panthers Party demands renaming of Jammu as 'Jambu'
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Jammu, Feb 13: National Panthers Party (JKNPP) today demanded renaming of the winter capital Jammu to 'Jambu' on the name of king Jambu Lochan.
It is believed by many historians and locals that Jammu was founded by 14th century king Raja Jambu Lochan.
Led by JKNPP president Balwant Mankotia the party passed a unanimous resolution demanding the change in name.
"It is need of the hour that Jammu district be renamed as Jambu and whole Jammu province be recognised as Jammu," said Mankotia, who is also MLA of Udhampur Assembly segment.
He said that this is "unfortunate" that even after having more geographical area, population and voters Jammu province has only 37 assembly seats, while Kashmir has 46 assembly seats which is the "biggest example of discrimination" with the Jammu province.
