No change in PRC process, says Malik

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Sunday said the government was not considering any changes to the Act governing the process of issuing Permanent Resident Certificates (PRCs). “It is an integral part of the legal structure of Jammu and Kashmir and there is no attempt whatsoever to tamper with this law,” he said.He was responding to a letter from National Conference leader Omar Abdullah which said, “You are mulling changes to the permanent resident certificate rules… this is an attempt to distort the demography of the State and is detrimental to J&K’s special status.”The People’s Democratic Party, People’s Conference and the Congress also expressed concern over moves to change the PRC process and warned of protests.
