JAMMU, Feb 26: Displaced families from J&K occupied by Pakistan today rejected Rs 5.50 lakh package per family and decided next course of action with regard to the notification issued by Deputy Commissioner, Jammu recently.
A meeting of displaced families from the areas of J&K occupied by Pakistan was held here today to decide future course of action regarding notification issued by Dy Commissioner Jammu on March 19, 20016, inviting comments on draft guidelines for disbursement of relief of Rs 2,000 crores, sanctioned by MHA Government of India as one time settlement of DPs of PoJK 1947, Chamb DPs of 1965/1971.
The objections were made to draft guidelines by the stake holders and notice issued on 17-02-2017 by Divisional Commissioner Jammu for filing of claims under Scheme of Central assistance for one time settlement of families of Displaced Persons (DP) of 1947 from PoJK and DP families of 1965 & 1971 from Chhamb under PM’s Development Package for J&K-2015. After a detailed examination of scheme made public by the Government on websites and by media notices it was decided that the all the POJK displaced families should not accept the amount of Rs 5.5o lakh per 1947 family as one time settlement.
The offer of Rs 5.50 lakh to all DPs’ families made by Govt of India it is a joke and in no way acceptable in lieu of left over properties worth crores of rupees at 2017 price.
PoJK DPs also condemn policy of Government to disown the families of PoJK DPs who are presently staying in Indian states other than J&K i.e Punjab, MP, UP, Delhi, Mumbai, etc and excluding them from any proposals for DPs. The Government should not create divides between PoJK DP families of J&K and others staying outside.
The organisation for rights of the 1947 Displaced aamilies from occupied areas of Jammu and Kashmir condemns the Action taken by Congress Government in 1971, then by Congress- NC Government in 2014 and thereafter, by BJP- PDP Government of State to disown over 5300 families ( as existed in 1947) and deny them state subject rights.
