Since peace with Pakistan is not possible let Govt. build safer colonies for border villagers
9/13/2017 9:27:37 PM
The over 17-year old demand for bunkers for the civilians on the LOC and on the IB and additional land where the affected people could live safely in Jammu region is still alive. The reason being that several thousand civilians get uprooted whenever Pakistani troops resort to ceasefire violations and target huts and houses of civilians besides the border outposts of the Army and the BSF. In fact the demand for alternate places where the civilians could built houses has risen soon after 1999 Kargil conflict. And during 1999-2000 several thousand families living in the border sectors of Pallanwala, Panjtoot, Samba, Suchetgarh, R.S.Pura and Hiranagar were displaced owing to heavy firing by Pak troops and the Rangers. During those critical years the Government set up camps for border dwellers and since then both the successive state and the central Governments have been promising separate land where new colonies could be established for displaced people. And whenever there is exodus of people from these border villages, hit by mortar shells, the demand is reraised for proper rehabilitation at safer places. Uproot from their homes and living in schools-turned-camps, people living along borders have demanded setting up of"individual bunkers" at their residences near the Line of Control (LoC) as Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh reached out to them here. Over 5,000 people living in 23 hamlets along the LoC were forced to shun homes and hearths in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district following heavy firing and shelling four months ago. "Our first and foremost demand is that the government should set up individual bunkers in each of the border house, if we have to live again along the LoC. This is most and first demand of the LoC people," has been voiced before the Union Home Minister,Rajnath Singh, who had some interaction with the displaced families. On several occasions in the past the successive central Governments have directed su ccessive stgates Governments to identify land away from the LOC and from the IB and after that acquire several acres at different places. However, hitherto there has been no progress with the result civilians, living close to the LOC and the IB, face the mortar shells and bullets of Pakistani forces. Several civilians have beeb killed during the last 20 years and scores of others have been injured. What is additional worry for the border villagers is the recurring loss to their farm produce. For months together they neither carfry out sowing nor harvest any produce. These border villagers are basically farmers and supply rise and wheat to the urban areas. Superior rice, called Basmati is exported from R.S.Pura which is treated as a rice bowl of Jammu. Apart from suffering death and wounds these hapless farmers suffer heavy losses. Since peace with Pakistan is not possible it is better for the central and the state Government to join hands and find out alternate and safe places for the border villagers.
