    Displaced and maimed in border villages need proper rehabilitation

    Tawi, December 30 (KIP): Following the coalition Government's
    decision to properly rehabilitate all those who have been
    affected by violence during the last 30 years there is need for bring
    all those affected by border ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops
    under the umbrella of rehabilitation.

    Ceasefire violations on the IB and on the LOC have been a
    recurring feature and part of the sponsored war that Pakistan has been
    fighting against for the last over 30 years.

    It will be quite unfortunate if only those affected in the
    valley are fully rehabilitated. Rehabilitation is a process
    which can win hearts of people, especially those affected by violence.
    Many people have been dislocated owing to ceasefire violations and maimed because they were injured in Pak firing. Number of houses has been hit by mortar fire and they too deserve to be brought under rehabilitation.

    So far Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, has simply announced
    grant of Rs.40,000 to widows and girls eligible for marriage.

    In this connection the Chief Minister needs to constitute a
    committee of prominent citizens who have reputation of being honest
    and the Government should suggest to the committee to enlist the names
    of all those who have been injured in violence. The members of the
    committee should belong to the three regions of Jammu and Kashmir so
    that there is no case of injustice.

    Once rehabilitation scheme is implemented it would give a
    chance to the PDP and the BJP to strengthen their vote bank and
    prevent from any erosion.

    The Government should constitute a separate committee of
    officials in the state who would keep a watch on all those
    rehabilitated lest they incite people to violence and help militants
    directly or indirectly. The Government should immediately stop
    rehabilitation scheme for these people. (KIP)
