Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 9: In a significant gathering held at Jagti township Nagrota Jammu, the Jagti Tenement Committee/Soan Kashmir Front J&K convened under the leadership of its president, Shadi Lal Pandita. Addressing the assembly, Pandita emphasized the longstanding plight of Kashmiri Pandits living in exile for the past 34 years, questioning the duration of their displacement and urging action from both the state and central governments of India.
The committee put forth a comprehensive set of demands aimed at addressing the multifaceted challenges faced by the Kashmiri Pandit community:
1. Resettlement in Kashmir Valley: The committee urged for the establishment of three satellite townships in the Kashmir Valley, strategically located in Baramulla, Srinagar, and Anantnag. Each township would cater to Kashmiri Pandits hailing from specific districts, ensuring equitable representation and accommodation.
2. Enhancement of Monthly Cash Relief: A significant increase in monthly cash relief from Rs. 13,000 to Rs. 25,000 was proposed, aiming to alleviate financial burdens on relief holders.
3. Employment Opportunities: The demand for a new package offering 20,000 jobs for unemployed educated youth of Kashmiri Pandits was raised, along with a call for on-spot recruitment drives, particularly in the police force.
4. Financial Support for Entrepreneurship: Over-aged youth were proposed to be offered interest-free bank loans of up to Rs. 25 lakh to kickstart their entrepreneurial ventures, fostering economic independence and growth within the community.
5. Restitution of Property Losses: Recognition and compensation for the losses incurred over 34 years, both in terms of movable and immovable property, were requested, aiming to restore the financial stability and security of Kashmiri Pandits.
6. Reclamation of Encroached Lands: The committee demanded the redemption and return of illegally encroached lands belonging to Kashmiri Pandits in the Kashmir Valley, including religious sites, to ensure their rightful ownership and preservation.
7. Political Representation: A call for political reservation was made, advocating for five assembly seats and two parliament seats to be allocated to Kashmiri Pandits with minority status, thus ensuring their adequate representation and participation in the political landscape.
These demands reflect the pressing need for comprehensive measures to address the socio-economic and political challenges faced by the Kashmiri Pandit community, with the hope of facilitating their dignified return and resettlement in their homeland.
