JAMMU, Feb 17: Panun Kashmir (PK) today said that Comprehensive Political Agenda (CPA) initiated by Kashmiri Pandit Joint Action recently, besides taking care of the geo-political aspirations of the Kashmiri Pandit community is specifically focused on the other core  of the community.
The CPA has also laid focus on economic rehabilitation issues of the youth, pressing concerns of the displaced employees especially the Valley posted employees, the people who deserve compensation rightfully due to them and also the civilizational concerns articulated through the passage of the Shrines and Temples Bill, PK president Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo along with Prof M L Raina, Chairman, Political Affairs Committee and Virender Raina, national spokesperson PK told reporters  here today.
Ashwani Chrungoo  said the CPA which has been presented to Government of India through appropriate channel has the potential to take the Kashmiri Pandit struggle in exile to the new level. “We enjoin upon all to join this joint action programme so that the community enables itself to get the attention it duly deserves”, he added.
Prof. M.L.Raina, Chairman, PAC Panun Kashmir said that the recent order of the State Government to reopen the registration of the “migrants” is a highly sinister move aimed at encouraging the registration of the so called political migrants from Kashmir. This so called fresh registration has the potential to open floodgates of fake imposters masquerading as “migrants”, he added.
He said at a time when Jammu is already facing a demographic challenge from Rohingyas and Bangladeshis, this encouragement to fresh migration from Kashmir of a particular community would adversely affect the demographic profile of Jammu region. The Government should instead strive to improve the living conditions of the existing displaced persons instead of encouraging a fresh wave of migration from Kashmir. This also goes contrary to the Government’s claims of normalcy and taking the Pandits to their homeland in Kashmir, he added.
Virender Raina, National Spokesperson-PK stated that the recent incidents of stone pelting on the security forces engaged in the anti terrorist operations in Kashmir is highly condemnable. On many occasions, the security forces have tried to avoid the collateral damage to the stone pelters and instead invited self damage in order to save them. Such actions of these anti-social individuals adversely impact the anti terrorist operations, he added.
He said the recent statement of the Army Chief in this regard, that all those involved in aiding the terrorists and helping them in escaping would be treated as Jehadis and anti nationals  and would be dealt with accordingly, is highly encouraging. The State Government is expected to learn lessons and needs to take serious measures in this regard instead of providing largesse to the stone pelters at the cost of the national interests, he added.
