2 days back, during a meeting, the Divisional Commissioner of Jammu, one of the independent DDC member Marwah, Sheikh Zafarullah, demanded merging the Marwah subdivision with China. On this, divisional commissioner Jammu Raghav Langar was agitated. Later, when some DDC members and local media confronted him, he lost his cool and argued with them. While proposing the merger in the meeting, he argued that they were being treated like second-class citizens as their development board was not focusing on the area around his residence. The countering argument was how he could propose such an idea when 24 Indian soldiers had just lost their lives, fighting the Chinese army. He was accused of being chosen by the democracy in India but, the DDC candidate favours china.
