JAMMU, Aug 18: Aam Aadmi Party’s senior leader Munish Kaushik today asked Bhartiya Janta Party Government to give priority to innocent precious lives of Kashmiri Pandits who are facing a never expected fear situation in Kashmir valley in wake of recent killings.
Aam Aadmi Party also extended its full support to ongoing agitation of Kashmiri Pandits and special package employees terming it as a human issue of urgent nature.
AAP leaders, headed by Munish Kaushik alongwith T S Tony and Muktesh Yogi visited the dharna site of KPs in Jammu and joined the protest demonstration extending full support to them.
Interacting with the protesting Kashmiri Pandits, AAP leader Munish Kaushik said that issue of theirs is of human importance and above all political issues which should be taken up on first priority by the Government as it is concerned with the innocent human lives.
“This is unfortunate that after 75 years of country’s independence, our own citizens are on roads for the safety and security of their lives and the Government employees engaged under special package are reluctant to go to the duties as they are not safe there and this all expose big claims of Government and a situation which is very far from being normal,” he said.
Munish Kaushik also hit hard at Government stating that on one hand BJP Government was seen busy in promotion of a movie in reel life of KPs but on other hand the Government is doing nothing in their real life. “They (KPs) are on protest for weeks together but Government is not even bothering to listen to them,” he added.
Munish further said that in Delhi, AAP Government headed by Arvind Kejriwal has done everything for upliftment and betterment of Kashmiri Pandits who are a stakeholder in every aspect but in Jammu and Kashmir, which is their own land, they are sitting on roads for their own safety.
