J-K Deputy CM warns against "hasty" move on women's bill

New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Mangat Ram Sharma has cautioned against any "hasty" move that could create a communal divide and affect the state's relations with rest of the country. Sharma's statement assumes even as his party Congress continues to lock horns with alliance partner PDP over the Women's Property Bill. Remaining firm on his party's decision to oppose the Bill that denies rights over immovable property in the state to women marrying non-state subjects, he, however, asserted that differences over the issue would not have any impact on the coalition government.
