Have hope in PM Modi: Kashmiri Pandits on PM meeting in US
9/22/2019 9:46:09 PM
Early Times Report
Srinagar, Sept 22: PM Narendra Modi on Sunday met Kashmiri Pandit community members in Houston during his US visit.
The group thanked PM Modi for the move on Jammu and Kashmir and said that 7,00,000 Kashmiri Pandits were indebted to his government.
The delegation of Kashmiri Pandits submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister in which they requested the PM to set up a task force under the Home Ministry to bring the community together to develop the region and repatriate Kashmiri Pandits.
In 1990, more than 5 lakh Kashmiri Pandits migrated from Kashmir to different parts of India and few families opted to live back in Kashmir despite all odds and hardships.
After abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, life in Kashmir is not returning to normal. Sunday was Day 49 with mobile and internet services blocked in the Valley.
Arjun, a student of class 6th in one of the reputed educational institutions in Srinagar, said that Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir are facing the same hardships as other people living in the Valley.
Arjun is also facing problems in education without schooling due to internet blockade in Kashmir.
"Our School is closed from the last one and half month. School is providing assignments on pen drives and I am getting tuition only at home," Arjun said.
Ashok Kumar, a Kashmiri Pandit, said they are happy PM Modi met their community members in the US and felt pain about the displacement of community from last 30 years.
He said, "Every government during the last 30 years assured us on our safe return to our homes, but so far no one seriously worked for it. We have hope in PM Modi because (Modi hai to mumkin hai)."
More than 2,000 Kashmiri Pandit families reside in the colonies in Budgam, Anathnag and Pulwama and all these families are getting there daily needs due to support of locals and state administration. After the abrogation of Article 370 from J&K, the impact of preventive measures taken after the move has also been felt among the community of the Kashmiri Pandit community in the Valley.
