JAMMU, Dec 5: The displaced persons from Pak occupied Jammu and Kashmir today staged protest demonstration, demanding disbursement of  relief amount as announced by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year.
The displaced persons from PoK under the banner of PoJK Refugees Front-1947, 65, 71   assembled near Press Club here and started protest demanding justice for  displaced persons from PoJK and other categories.
The members of displaced community led by Rachhpal Singh Chib , president, assembled at Exhibition Ground in the morning and started their  protest. They demanded that process of distribution of Rs 2000 crore package announced by Prime Minister be started without any delay. They claimed that this amount should not be treated as full and final package as many other components of the package  have been ignored.
The displaced persons including women activists strongly demanded that Govt should provide them justice. They were also  protesting  against the PRO for his allegedly shady role  in previous package during 2000 and ignoring many deserving families.  They said there was no clarity in PM’s package and all type of displaced persons were still confused.   They also demanded enhancement in package announced.
Chib while addressing the protesting DPs said State Govt issued notification during March this year through DC Jammu, inviting documents to be submitted along with application form for all categories of DPs for claims. The PRO and DC have been appointed as designated authorities for this purpose. It is strange that even after several months no additional staff has been deployed to verify the documents of the DPs at the designated offices. He demanded inclusion of  5300 left out families, ownership rights to DPs of 1947, issuance of ALC certificate to DPs and  reservation to their wards. He demanded Rs 30 lakh compensation for each DP family.
