Panun Kashmir urges RSS to bat for abrogation of Article 370

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Panun Kashmir, an organisation of displaced Kashmiri pandits advocating carving out of a separate homeland for the community in the valley, today urged the RSS to consider abrogation of Article 370 in J&K during its three-day long conference here. “Since the most important meeting of the RSS takes place in Jammu at a very important time, we take an opportunity to make an appeal to the leadership of the RSS to consider the issue of abrogation of Article 370 from the Indian Constitution”, president Panun Kashmir Ashwani Chrungoo told reporters here today. He claimed the Article 370 of the Constitution infringes the fundamental rights of the Indian citizens “in context of Jammu and Kashmir state in many ways”. “It is this Article that has provided a constitutional mechanism to perpetuate the concept of secession in J&K and which justifies a psychological drift from the national mainstream giving rise to absurd theories of sub- nationalism in Kashmir,” Chrungoo said. Article 370 grants special autonomous status to J&K. Chairman, Political Affairs Committee, M L Raina said the Kashmiri Pandits continue to live as refugees in their own country for the last 28 years. “Their pain and agony are unparallel in the post freedom era of our country,” he said, adding that “it would be great if the historic meeting of the RSS gives a clarion call for their resettlement in the valley as per their geo-political aspirations as enunciated in the Margdarshan Resolution of 1991”.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Modi govt has no objection to homeland, colonies for KP: Singh

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Narendra Modi-led government at the Cente has no objection to setting up of homeland, township or colonies for the rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley, Union minister Jitendra Singh said today. Addressing a conference of Kashmiri Pandits (KP) here today, he said it is for them to decide what they want. The KPs today demanded implementation of 1991 Margdarshan resolution which allows carving out of a homeland for seven lakh KPs with union territory status in Kashmir. “Whether colonies would be made or clusters or a homeland, whatever will be made (in Kashmir valley for rehabilitation of KPs), Modi government will have no objection. Union Home Ministry will have no objection. But please tell me what is to be set up,” Singh said. Demanding implementation of 1991 Margdarshan resolution, two organisations of displaced KPs – Panun Kashmir and Youth All India Kashmiri Samaj(YAIKS) – also demanded the Modi government to initiate a structured dialogue process with their leadership on a comprehensive political agenda of the community. “This year, the KP community is entering 28th year of its exile, after having suffered persecution, genocide and ethnic cleansing resulting into their exodus from Kashmir in 1989-90. “In 1991, a Marghdarshan resolution was passed envisaging a free and full flow of Indian constitution in territory (to be carved out) in Kashmir (for KPs) and called for action,” they said in their charter of demands. President of Panun Kashmir Ashwani Chrungoo, YAIKS chief R K Bhat and All India Kashmiri Pandit Conference (AIKPC), in a joint memorandum, handed over a “comprehensive political agenda” to Singh and J&K State JP President Sat Sharma at the seminar here today. Terming KPs as “indigenous people of Kashmir”, who are the first stakeholders to the territory, he said that the government is aware of their difficulties and all the issues would be addressed in time-bound manner. State BJP chief Sat Sharma said that displaced KPs will settle in Kashmir this year or the next year and as per their conditions, “if your want Panun Kashmir and homeland, it will be as per your conditions. And we will raise your voice in the Assembly and Parliament.” During the function, senior KP leader and President AIKPC H N Jattu was conferred the ‘Pandit Amarnath Vaishnavi Samman’ for his lifetime achievement in espousing the cause of KPs. Apart from him, an eminent scientist who while working in Brussels invented a new drug for treatment of drug-resistant tuberculosis Dr Anil Kaul and President of Khalsa Centre London Babu Harbans Singh Mehta who made immense contribution in the social field were felicitated on the occasion.
