Kashmiri Migrants demand enhancement in cash relief

JAMMU, JAN 8: To urge the State as well as Central Governments for redressing long pending grievances of Kashmiri migrant relief holders, a large number of over-aged youth from minority community staged a protest demonstration in front of Press Club Jammu today. Leveling serious allegations on coalition Government that there is no proper agenda or plan to inhabit minority community candidly, the protestors demanded enhancement in cash relief.
Expressing anguish on the discriminatory attitude and approach of both State as well as Central Government towards the community, the protestors alleged that right from last more than 27 years, neither National Human Rights Commission nor Minority Commission of the country has directed the State Governments to resolve burning issues of Kashmiri migrants, who are still living in a dilapidated condition in several camps located in Jammu and outskirts.
Government failed to provide employment opportunities to needful and deserving minority youth whereas all necessary efforts were done to rehabilitate stone-pelters and anti-national elements, they added.
The protestors appealed to the National Human Rights Commission to intervene into the matter for rescuing minority community ‘Kashmiri Hindus’.
