Jammu, June 30: Pandit Amar Nath Vaishnavi, a towering leader & a father figure in the Kashmiri Pandit Community was fondly remembered on his 8th Nirvan Divas by All State Kashmiri Pandit Conference today. Keeping in view the Pandemic restrictions, instead of a grand community commemoration of the day, a restricted function as per Government protocol, was held to pay floral tributes to the popular leader, who headed the organization for a long time, to contribute to the welfare of the beleaguered community, especially post 1990 exodus. Paying tributes to Late Vaishnavi ji, President ASKPC Advocate Ravinder Raina stated that the great leader selflessly was on a mission of society welfare and the desire of an Akhand Bharat was very dear to his heart, for which he had devoted his personal life as a true sanyasi. Such a Karamyogi is born very rarely, he said. Recalling the contributions of the father of the community, various leaders of the community also conveyed their tributes over video conferencing and stated that the towering personality was a down to earth simple & honest person who at any given time volunteered to help people in distress. His leadership qualities & leading from the front were visible at the time of exodus in 1990, when he gave succor to the refugees and managed their rehabilitation by coordinating between various Govt. & non-government agencies.
