HWSK concerned over being left out
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 9: Hindu Welfare Society Kashmir has expressed concern over Valley based Pandits being left out from the Prime Minister’s package for migrant Pandits.
In a meeting held here, the valley based Pandits said that they have been left out from the package when the government had already promised that valley based would be part and parcel of the PM’s package.
“But now the government seem to be backtracking from its promises,” the meeting observed.
The members of the Society said that Kashmiri Pandits living in the valley have gone through difficulties and sufferings during the turmoil. “The government at this juncture has shown discriminatory attitude towards us,” a spokesman of the Society said.
“The Kashmiri Pandits living in the Valley are also displaced within the Valley. They didn’t leave the Valley and kept Hindu-Muslim unity alive.”
They urged the government to consider them for the employment and the rehabilitation, failing which they would leave the valley en-mass.
