Ridiculing Govt decision on separate township
Pandits to accelerate struggle for homeland

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Nov 24: Ridiculing Union Home Ministry's claim of rejecting the separate twonship demand for Kashmiri Pandits in Valley, the displaced Pandits today said that there was no such demand from the community.
While commenting over the Union Government statement over the issue the KP activists and leaders today said that separate township or twin township has never been a demand of the community which right from 1990 has deamnded a separate homeland on North East of River Jehlum with UT status for settlement of over seven Kashmiri Hindus in Valley, the demand supported by VHP and other national Hindu organisations in their convention.
``Separate township has never been our demand as we are for a Separate homeland within Valley as per Margdarshan resolution of 1991'', said Ramesh Kumar a social activist and protagonist of homeland.
The Government has no alternative but to accept this demad some day as it is the only solution to Kashmir strife now, he added while talking to this reporter. Ramesh said township was the demand made by some agents of Sangh parivar on the behest of RSS about five years back who gave the idea of twin township within Valley to settle the migrants including those from majority as well as minority community there but KPs as general have never been with this idea as separate township or twin or multi townships will not serve the purpose of displaced Pandits who will be put to more problems and humiliation this way.
``Our only demand is the separate homeland wthin Valley and KPs all over globe will fight for this demand for our honourable anddignified settlement in Valle'', he said , adding ``Pandits all over globe are getting united over homeland now as they know there is no alternative to save and protect their ancient culture''.
Criticisng the Union Government, PK Dhar a Delhi based PK activist said how far Delhi people will make us scapegoat by tossing us to makesettlements with separtists and Pakistani agents. The Pandits as conscious and peace loving citizens will not tolerate this. ``Whenever they want to make anys ettlemnt with Muslims the Delhi plays Pandits card which is totally unfortunate''. The community has taken a serious exception to it and all Pandit factions should nowunit to fight their battle independently without any body's support''.
Dhar said the Union Government has been exposed before the community and it has been responsible for the mass exodus of the community for always making experiements on Kashmir rght from 1947. The minority Hindus faced the brunt of it since thn and they were targetted to reap for every sin committed by Delhi which culminated in their mass exodus in 1989-90.
He said it is unfortunate that politicians whether of Congress, BJP or any otherpoltical party including PDP and National Conference are enjoying at our peril. ``We are leading an exiledlife for 28 years and have faced enormous loss as our propertiles were destroyed and encroached by the prophets of doom incoonivance with the authoirites. The revenue records were mutiated and properties fraudulently transferred on their name. Many migrant familes are involved in litigations now to get the encroachments removed but Government does not bother, said Dhar.
``We have lost all hopes in the Government which in last 28 years failed to provide jobs to the community in State and Central Government departments or gave loans to our youth for starting the business'', said Raman Kumar another homeland protagonist from Chandigarh.
The 6000 job package announced by former PM Manmohan Singh in 2008 was an eye wash as till date only 2000 pandit youth were given jobs. This shows how callous the poltical parties are towards this community. The Pandits should take a lesson and fight for their separate homeland in Valley wth out being stooge to any politcal party including RSS.
