Insult heaped on injury: Omar on domicile law change amid Covid-19

Apr 01, 2020 16:27 IST

National conference leader Omar Abdullah on Wednesday denounced the Centre’s move to rework the domicile laws in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir at a time when the nation is pooling all resources to stave off the coronavirus pandemic. The former Chief Minister, who was until recently in detention, questioned the timing of the move and called the law ‘hollow’ which does not offer the protections that it had promised. In a tweet Omar wrote ‘insult is heaped on injury’. According to the change in laws, anyone who has resided for 15 years in Jammu and Kashmir or has studied for seven years and appeared in Class 10 and Class 12 examinations in an educational institution in the union territory is a domicile.
