Jammu and Kashmir Assembly on Thursday passed a unanimous resolution for the return of migrants who have moved out of Kashmir during past 27 years.

"A conducive atmosphere should be created for their safe return," Speaker LA Kavendra Gupta read in the house.

Earlier, former Chief Minister and National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah had asked the government to pass a resolution to favour returning of all sections of people who migrated from Kashmir over the past 27 years.

"Besides Kashmiri Pandits, people from other communities including Sikhs also migrated from Kashmir due to the turmoil that hit Kashmir. Government should pass a resolution so that all those people will return to Kashmir," Abdullah told the House.

Parliamentary Affairs minister, Abdul Rahman Veeri said: "We accept the need to bring our people back who left and thus a resolution is being passed here."

"They are our part, bringing them back is what keeps our conscience alive," he said.
