One place settlement only viable solution to Pandits issue: KPC

Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, May 22: Kashmiri Pandit Conference (KPC) in a meeting at New Delhi today stated that the only viable solution for rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits in exile is one place settlement at the land of  Kashyap in Kashmir Valley so that the community can lead peaceful,  honourable and dignified life.
President, KPC, Kundan Kashmiri addressing the meeting said that the main purpose of this resolution was to put an end to the atrocities committed by fundamentalist forces against the minorities in Kashmir as both Central and State governments failed to protect this microscopic minority in Valley after the independence.
He said that the resolution of  one place settlement i.e Kashyap Bhoomi was adopted by the exiled KPs in response to the criminal and genocidal behavior of the intolerant fundamentalists. This demand of separate Kashyap Bhoomi for the exiled Kashmiri Pandits is no more an insignificant issue.
KPC has categorically reaffirmed not to budge an inch from its demand of one place settlement passed in KP Assembly in 2001 under the chairmanship of community father late Amar Nath Vaishnavi.
Kashmiri appealed the community in exile to unitedly struggle for their vital issues which included relocation of  PM package and other employees from Kashmir Valley to safe zones of India till the community is rehabilitated at one place in Valley, appoint Commission of Enquiry under retired Supreme Court Judge and probe through NIA/ CBI in the ethnic cleansing, forced exodus, massacres, loot and arson.
He also demanded restoration of fundamental and Constitutional rights to them at par with all citizens of India.
