Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, May 4: Reconciliation, Return & Rehabilitations of Migrants has lamented that despite promises the Government of India has not taken any worthwhile step to provide relief and succor to the Kashmiri Pandits who are living as migrants in the different parts of country.
In a statement, Chairman of Reconciliation, Return & Rehabilitations of Migrants Satish Mahaldar said that there is no mention of any temple being restored in the budget announced for Jammu & Kashmir. He said that till date no list of the temples has been published which are going to be restored as per the priority in the current financial year.
Mahaldar said that why the Shiv temple of Baramulla has not been included in the religious circuits announced in the budget. He lamented that not a single Kashmiri Pandit has been enrolled under MNREGA and no benefit has trickled down. He said that Kashmir Pandits should be included in the scheme meant for encouraging youth to excel in animal and sheep husbandry.
“We expect 50 Kashmiri Pandit students to be included in the games since the Government of India wants the Kashmiri youth to take part in sports activities at full throttle. No reservation has been granted to the Kashmiri Pandits (migrants) in the professional colleges of J&K since last 30 years. This too needs to be addressed,” said the Chairman. Mahaldar said that 20 percent seats quota should be reserved for Kashmiri Pandits migrants in all professional colleges of J&K. There should be age and qualification relaxation for Kashmiri Pandits under PM employment package scheme or otherwise. We seek special quota in jobs too under as SC/ST or a similar category so that the victims of terrorism are uplifted & justice is given, he added.
“Why Government of India/ union territory government is not providing any industrial land to Kashmir Pandit Migrants to set up industry towards economic rehabilitation in the valley. We urge GOI immediately to sanction minimum 200 Acres of land which should be allocated / reserved for Kashmiri Pandit Migrants who want to set up industry in Kashmir at nominal cost,” said Mahaldar.
The Chairman said that there is no provision of budget allocation/towards the physical and economic rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits. He said that no proposal has been made by Government of India to return and rehabilitate the Kashmiri Pandits in the valley. Volunteered 419 Kashmiri Pandit families had been promised land and house in Kashmir as part of the return and rehabilitation process, but nothing has been done in this regard.
“Around 100 Kashmiri Pandit non migrant families are living in Kashmir. They are living in rented accommodation. They should also be included in this package. We urge the GoI to immediately to allocate three lakh crore budget towards the physical & economic rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandit Migrants in the current financial year with special provision. We urge GoI to immediately notify the land towards the physical rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits across 10 districts of Kashmir valley. The Kashmiri Pandit Migrants should be rehabilitated as per there parliamentary constituency specified on their migrants cards,” said Mahaldar.
