JKSAC members project issues of DPs from PoK

Excelsior Correspondent
RAJOURI, Oct 5: The Jammu Kashmir Sharnarthi Action Committee (JKSAC) today strongly projected the issues of displaced persons from Pak occupied Kashmir.
In a meeting of the DPs of 1947 from PoK held at Tanwal in Rajouri in collaboration with its Rajouri unit led by Master Mohinder Pal Sharma, Kewal Krishan, Sarpanch Yog Raj Sharma and Davinder Kumar, the members took stock of the difficulties / problems being faced by DPs with regard to the PM relief package.
The participant in the meeting from all adjoining villages expressed their strong resentment for not including the 5300 DPs families of 1947 from POK in the instant package for relief besides other issues vis-à-vis slow disbursement of package, non-payment of relief to the beneficiaries till date despite clearance of objections, non-inclusion of DPs families due to non-availability of records, compensation for left-out families having deficiency in land allotment.
While addressing the meeting Gurdev Singh, president assured the participants that JKSAC is well aware of the issue and have already taken up the with the concerned authorities and are committed to resolve the same. He further strongly condemned the State Govt for misleading the High Court as well as to Central Govt in respect of 5300 families of 1947 from POK settled outside the state who have been denied the relief package on the ground that they have failed to register themselves with PRO Jammu and settled outside and are not entitled to relief under article 370 / Article 35-A of 1954 of constitution of India.
It is very unfortunate that these yard-sticks have not been applied in respect of Kashmiri migrants who have also settled outside the state/abroad and even many families from majority community from Kashmir valley have also settled outside the state because of threats from the militants.
He added that Advisor BB Vyas in a meeting regarding the issue relating to Kashmiri Migrants on July 14 vide No. DMRRR/MR/64/2018 dated 31-7-18 in Item No. 4, clearly admitted that the case of DPs of 1947 from POK settled outside the state can be considered subject to sufficient proof from concerned Deputy Commissioner/ Secretaries. Taking into account all these facts Gurdev Singh appealed to Mr Vyas to take up the issue with e Governor for the inclusion of these 5300 families for relief.
