After featuring in Article 370 memes, Robert Vadra asks users to respect 'sensitive issues'
Expressing his discomfort over memes featuring his name and photos, Robert Vadra, who is facing probe in land-grab cases, on Thursday advised social media users to respect the emotions of people in Jammu and Kashmir
New Delhi: When the Centre revoked Article 370 converting Jammu and Kashmir into a Union Territory, several memes flooded social media and many were pertaining to Robert Vadra, businessman and husband of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi. Here are some memes that were shared on Twitter...
Gifs were also shared on the social media which related to land being available.
The memes are based on that the rest of the country can now buy land in Jammu and Kashmir after the removal of its special status. In a Facebook post, Robert Vadra advised social media users to respect the emotions of people in Jammu and Kashmir instead of making fun of the situation. "What's the obsession, with me?" Vadra questioned trollers. "I'm glad I have a good sense of humour," he asserted. "But sensitive issues affecting the people, who bear a life-changing dynamic from States to Union Territories, must be respected, with their emotions too. All the citizens of our country are equal."

When it comes to tourism, the Maharashtra government wants to set up a tourist resort in Ladakh. As some of the provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution was revoked, the bar on outsiders from buying land in Jammu and Kashmir is expected to cease to exist.
Tourism Development Minister Jaykumar Rawal said, "We would like to purchase land and set up an MTDC (Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation) resort in Ladakh. A sizable number of tourists visit Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir every year and with the abrogation of Article 370, I think we can officially set up a resort. The resort will be as modern as those developed by MTDC in Maharashtra."
