J&K UT administration invisible to PoK DPs: Chuni
SOS International observes Oct 22 as Black Day
10/22/2021 10:14:28 PM

JAMMU, Oct 22: In keeping with its tradition, SOS International- an Organization for Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) Displaced Persons-observed October 22 as “Black Day” at its headquarter in Bakshi Nagar, Jammu.
On the occasion, rich tributes were paid to thousands of people from Hindu and Sikh communities who were massacred during the Pakistani invasion in Jammu and Kashmir in 1947.
The programme started with “Sarva Dharma Prarthana” followed by recitation of heroic tales and poems of the time.
The speakers deliberated on the continued indifferent attitude of the Union Territory administration towards families of displaced persons from PoK.
In his keynote address, the Chairman of SOS International, Rajiv Chuni, said, “Despite being bonafide citizens of Jammu and Kashmir, we supported abrogation of articles 370 and 35 A.
With the revocation of the semi-autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir, thousands of displaced families from PoK were expecting their longstanding demands to be fulfilled. But instead of giving us promised ‘Achche Din’, the government has become completely unaccountable to the long-neglected PoK Displaced community.”
He lamented that even the welfare package passed by the State Government of NC-Congress in October 2014 have been abandoned by the Government of India and Union Territory administration.
Chuni added that the bifurcation of posts of the ex-officio PRO from the post of the Custodian Jammu has affected the displaced persons from PoK in many ways.
Chuni said and went on to explain, “To avail cash compensation of Rs 5.5 lakh, a claimant has to get application related documents from the PRO office and then submit the claim in the same office. While officially the disbursement of financial compensation to the PoK displaced families is underway, on the ground no one has received the compensation in the past one year.
He further said, “None of the 70 Union Ministers and 300 parliamentarians who have visited J&K after August 5, 2019, have paid a visit to any of our basti or camp in or around Jammu.”
Stressing on 24 vacant seats reserved in the Legislature of Jammu and Kashmir, he demanded that at least one-third of the frozen seats i.e. eight seats must be opened for PoK representatives to politically empower the community which has no voice in the J&K’s Assembly or Indian Parliament.
General Secretary of the organization, VK Datta, Prof NN Sharma, Amarjit Singh, Dr RC Gupta, Gurmeet Singh Isher, Capt Kundan Lal, Jorawar Singh, Sartaj Singh Isher, Parmod Ghai, Ved Raj Bali and Om Parkash Randawa were also present on the occasion.
