Successive Govts fail to fulfill promises made with Pandits: KPC

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Jan 2: Kashmiri Pandit Conference (KPC) today in a meeting at New Delhi stated that all the claims and promises made with displaced KP community by all State and Central Governments at the helm of affairs from time to time related to their rehabilitation, return and restoring their human,religious and Constitutional rights were nothing except an eye wash and hoodwinking of the community.
“We expressed shock over the behavior against such peace loving community who were victimized for standing against the forces inimical to the national unity and integration”, KPC president Kundan Kashmir said while addressing the meeting.
The community is living in a state of conditionality, strife, restlessness, confusion, pain and agony,. Its future is totally bleak as the situation in Kashmir is going from bad to worst. Under these circumstances the return of Pandits is not possible and acceptable as planned by the Governments from time to time to settle it in clusters in Valley, he added.
The meeting said the return of KPs would be possible only at consolidated portion of land under the complete writ of Indian Constitution and with all constitutional and basic rights and privileges. KP community will in no way allow to waste their 29 years long struggle nor would succumb under the gimmicks of selfish elements. The selfish elements within and outside community have no right to decide the fate of lakhs of unfortunate KPs in exile, the meeting added.
Kundan Kashmiri said that community was betrayed as no steps were taken to grant a special package to it in Central Government departments, passage of Shrines and Temples Bill, return and rehabilitation in Kashyap State within Valley, restoration of their Constitutional, religious and basic rights, health schemes and compensation to their gutted and left over property.
