"The Pir Panjal region has suffered the worst kind of discrimination over years. No railway line, abandoning of the proposed four-lane project of the Jammu-Poonch highway by restricting it to Akhnoor, are just some of examples of discrimination against our region," he said addressing the media in Rajouri on Saturday.
