Nothing changed for KP community in 30 years
Rehabilitation, resettlement of Kashmiri Pandit migrants still a distant dream

Early Times Report

JAMMU, May 25: Despite lapse of over 30 years now, nothing has been changed for Kashmiri Pandit migrants who were forced to leave their homes and hearths in the wake of armed insurgency in valley at the behest of neighbouring country Pakistan way back in 1989-90.
Since then the community has been living in Jammu and other parts of the country as migrants in pathetic conditions with a ray of hope in their hearts that one day central government and union territory government would come to their rescue and the community will be relieved of pain and agony they have been facing for not years but decades all together.
Many governments at centre and union territory have changed in last three decades but what could not be changed is the fate of Kashmiri Pandit migrants which hangs still in balance and one can gauge it by the fact that the KP community remained nobody's cause of concern.
Since the inception of popular government of Bharatiya Janata Party at centre with thumping majority under the dynamic leadership of Narendra Modi, Kashmiri Pandit migrants have been pinning high hopes for their rehabilitation and resettlement in valley for the last six years in particular, but to their utmost surprise they have shown a cold response so far.
The KP community expressed hope that BJP government at centre will come to their rescue because it has been able to take historical decisions which include remarkable abrogation of controversial articles, resettlement package for PoJK refugees during the period of partition, change of J&K state into union territory and so on but nothing was stored there to uplift the community was shocking and gives a feeling of insecurity asserted the KPs.
“Perhaps Kashmiri migrants are not a vote bank either for ruling party or opposition parties and voice of hapless Kashmiri Pandit migrants has been gagged by self styled leaders which has proved their non -existence in the matters they were supposed to be highlighted at relevant fora,” said a social activist Sunil Pandita.
He said although all residents of valley were enjoying minority status despite being in majority but we KPs who are in minority were deprived of this category, added Pandita. He also took a dig at those self styled leaders who have been living outside valley prior to migration and now were thrusting their views on community members by showing them green postures to safeguard their own interests.
