Early Times Report

Srinagar, Oct 22: Chairman of Kashmir Pandit Sangharsh Samiti (KPSS), Sanjay Tickoo on Friday said that Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, who is arriving on 3-day J&K visit should meet the minorities also. Tickoo, who along with few other Kashmiri Pandits didn’t migrate from the Valley in 1990, while talking to a news channel said, “It’s not for the first time that security has been beefed up ahead of any VVIPs visit to the Valley.
It used to happen in the past also. But this time I am a bit surprised, J&K Board is conducting the practical exams of students, who will be out on Saturday also. It seems that J&K administration wants to show the Home Minister that the situation is normal.”
Tickoo said, “After the recent killings, members of the minority community get four to five calls in a day from the concerned police stations asking them about their whereabouts and well-being and we are told that we should stay indoors for the next 3-days.
On Saturday when the Home Minister will be here, students from our community will also be out to attend the exams.”
Tickoo said that the Home Minister should meet the members of the minority community and also visit Downtown to get the feedback from the ground.
