“A lot of propaganda is being carried out that lands have been sold. I even want to ask you that if land has been given to someone from outside J&K at any village or any other place, kindly inform us” Sinha said.

Srinagar: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Thursday said that “not an inch of agricultural land” in Jammu and Kashmir has been given to any one from outside the UT. Sinha who kick started the Apple festival 2021 at SKICC here told the farmers that “no agricultural land has been given to any one from outside and to protect the land of Jammu and Kashmir is the responsibility of the government of Jammu and Kashmir”.

“A lot of propaganda is being carried out that lands have been sold. I even want to ask you that if land has been given to someone from outside J&K at any village or any other place, kindly inform us” Sinha said. “ The job of instilling fear among people being carried out is not right.

One must speak with responsibility and it is a fact that not even an inch of land belonging to any farmer has been given to anyone from outside Jammu and Kashmir and even law states that agricultural land has to be protected. With due respect to this law, it is the responsibility of the Jammu and Kashmir government to safeguard the agricultural lands”, the LG said.
