JAMMU, Jan 14: Panun Kashmir (PK) conducted the meeting of its Executive Council at Jammu today under the chairmanship of Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, its president.
The members reviewed the organizational and socio-political situation particularly prevailing over the last two months in the State. The meeting unanimously endorsed the opinion of the Army Chief, Gen. Bipin Rawat that the educational scenario in the Kashmir valley represents the radicalized socio-political atmosphere. The Army chief deserves kudos for speaking truth about Valley, the meeting added.
Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, president, PK in his address stated that his organisation would always highlight the truthful picture of the J&K along with the State of the minorities living there. The Kashmiri Pandit community needs to bring to the fore the bigger dimensions of the Kashmir issue that pave way for their resettlement in the Valley in near future. The Margdarshan Resolution is the simplest way to espouse the cause of the Pandits at national and international level, he added.
“We reject the argument vehemently that Kashmir needs a “political resolution”. This is a cry of the failed political ideology and practice to blackmail the Indian masses. The Instrument of Accession, 1972 Shimla Agreement and the Unanimous Parliamentary Resolution on Jammu & Kashmir finally resolve all the political issues pertaining to Kashmir”, he added.
He said the displacement and resettlement of Kashmiri Pandit community is the only political issue that needs redressal at a national level as per the Homeland Resolution of 1991. He further said that the issue pertaining to the Holocaust of 1990 has a great bearing on the fate and future of the KP community and the nation. “We reiterate our appeal to the other State Assemblies of the country to pass resolutions on the displacement of KPs in their houses regarding the Holocaust and the ethnic cleansing of the KPs on this year’s Holocaust Day or thereafter as was done by J&K Legislature last year”, he added.
Virender Raina, national spokesperson-PK while making his presentation said that the issue of the onetime settlement of the overaged youth needs urgent attention of the Government. The Health insurance issue also needs a review in order to accommodate all strata of the displaced society, he added.
The recruitment process under PM’s employment package which has been very slow by now also require urgent attention of the Government.
