Execute PoK DPs package in totality or face heat: Chuni to BJP


NL Correspondent

, Dec 17: SOS – an Organization for PoK Displaced Persons today held dharna to warn Government over its biased and brutal approach against PoK DPs outside its headquarters, in Bakshi Nagar, Jammu. PoK Displaced Persons sat on dharna spearheaded by SOS International Chairman, Rajiv Chuni and displayed resentment by raising slogans against Government's apathy towards PoK DPs.
The Dharna was held over to mark 5 main key issues, including implementation of PoK DPs package passed by NC-Congress Cabinet in 2014 in toto, formation of uniform policy for all the displaced communities including PoK DPs, establishment of corridors for PoK DPs to visit their religious places & shrines, restoration of 1/3rd i.e. 8 frozen seats lying vacant for PoK DPs in Legislative Assembly and inclusion of 5300 DPs families living outside the J&K State in the ambit of package for PoK DPs. Chuni said that the package, passed by NC-Congress coalition Government in the year 2014 in which Rs 25 lakh cash as Ex Gratia Grant, reservation to wards of PoK DPs in professional and technical colleges across the country, employment package for unemployed youths were incorporated must be implemented in and spirit otherwise, SOS International will go on indefinite dharna until and unless complete justice regarding their demands are fulfilled.
He further said that BJP's slogan ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas' is confined to only Valley Migrants as Saffron Party keeps on focusing for the Vikas of this specific community neglecting other Displaced Persons, especially PoK DPs, and other Migrants of the State.
He further stated that SOS International has been demanding permit PoK DPs to visit their religious places and shrines in PoK but Government has not paid any heed over it. He alleged that BJP is deceitfully trying to distort the history of PoK DPs by linking Valley Migrants with it as it is evident that KPs have never been the inhabitants of these areas.
Chuni further said that it has been more than 4 and half years, since BJP led Central Government has taken the reins of the country in its hands and it too has followed same footsteps of its predecessors of harassing PoK DPs.
He said that PoK DPs are foremost sufferers as they got displaced many times during ceasefire violations on International Border (IB) and Line of Control (LoC) therefore, they must be provided with much needed succour and healing touch that shall end their plights.
