Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Feb 13: Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, senior BJP and Kashmiri Pandit leader and in charge Department of Political Affairs and Feedback, J&K-BJP has said the focus in the Parliamentary debate on the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2021 passed by the Lok Sabha gave recognition to the struggle of the Kashmiri Pandits in exile for an impartial enquiry in respect of the heinous crimes against humanity in Jammu and Kashmir committed by the extremists and terrorists.
While expressing his pleasure over the speeches made by the Lok Sabha members and in particular MP, Satyapal Singh gave a detailed description of the KPs ethnic cleansing issue, Chrungoo said that it has brought the real issue under focus again on an appropriate platform at a right time.
The BJP leader was analyzing the Parliamentary debate on the issue of J&K while speaking in a meeting of the party activists. He said, “The other members like Anuradha, Bhrehthari Mehtab and Ravi Ranjan Singh spoke great sentiments in their words about the contribution in the past and current plight of the Kashmiri Pandits caused due to their forced mass exodus in 1989-90”.
“The recent letter of BJP national spokesperson, R. P. Singh to the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah requesting for setting up of a Commission of Enquiry in this context and the NHRC directions to the Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs about my request for establishment of Special Crimes Tribunal are a clear pointer that the issue needs redressal forthwith now. The Lok Sabha debate is a clear recognition of our relentless efforts in this context”.
There are further expectations that the discrimination with a large portion of population in the UT of Jammu & Kashmir will come to an end by a judicious Delimitation process and report in the near future. The members of the displaced community form a politically victimised community for no fault of theirs and the ethnic cleansing in 1989-90 has added and multiplied their woes in this respect. A fervent appeal is made to the Delimitation Commission to exercise its powers to send such a recommendation to the President and the Government of India that settles the unsettled issue of politically important concern of the Kashmiri Pandit community.
