JKSAC demands to include POJK refugees in Pahari reservation quota

Early Times Report
Jammu, Apr 4: Jammu Kashmir Sharnarthi Action Committee (JKSAC) has welcomed the new amended domicile law and demanded UT government to include the wards of POK DPs in 4% reservation quota in jobs/technical institutions allotted to Pahari speaking people irrespective of their place of residence.
President Gurdev Singh said that wards of DPs have suffered discrimination in services, apart from other spheres of life at the hands of erstwhile valley centric dispensations which had compelled these youth to leave their places in search of jobs to other states and even outside the country. He further said that hope had generated among DPs after BJP came to power and abrogation of article 370 and 35A, resulting in the total merger of erstwhile state with national main stream in shape of UTs, that their long pending rehabilitation issues would be understood in the right perspective and be resolved, particularly adequate compensation of their left out properties in POK and employment package/reservation for their wards. But their hopes were belied.
He said that after dispersal of DPs from the refugees camps they were allotted lands on borders and other far flung hilly areas of Jammu province. Because of poor economic conditions and due to scarcity of educational institutions in the said areas having no or poor infrastructure, their wards remained educationally poor and backward and cannot compete with the wards of other sections of the society.
He said that during past seven decades reservation was provided to economically poor and backward sections of societies, but unfortunately despite of DPs being falling in this criterion denied this privilege as per the reservation act/rules. He urged upon the Union Govt. to include the wards of DPs in 4% reservation quota allotted to Pahari people irrespective of their place of residence as they were also ousted forcibly from the same area and speak the Pahari language.
He further asked the DPs not to be misled by a news appeared in press regarding the Immoveable Property Act of 1997 (even in amended form) with regard to Kashmiri migrants is not applicable to DPs of 1947 from POK as their lands both state and evacuee allotted under cabinet order 254-C, 578-C and similar other orders fall in schedule II of the Agrarian Reforms Act of 1976 where in it is clear that unauthorized tenets or cultivators have no rights over such lands and even High Courts has also given verdicts in such cases and unauthorized occupants has been dis-possessed.
The DPs should approach the Revenue authorities as per the Agrarian laws for vacation of their lands which are under illegal occupation of cultivators.
He urged upon Ravinder Raina, Ram Madhav and other BJP leaders to approach the UT and Central Govt. to take adequate steps to resolve the pending issues of DPs as it is right time to reciprocate their massive mandate.
