Bharatiya Janata Party has hailed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for distributing Rs 5.5 lakhs per family among the Pakistani refugees of 1947, 1965 and 1971 in Jammu region under 'Prime Minister's Development Plan."
In a statement, BJP's state spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan said, "The process for providing assistance to these people has officially been kicked off by BJP-PDP coalition government in JK. It was indeed a historic moment for the displaced persons, whose three generations have perished while agitating for decades after they left their homes and hearths besides losing their family members."
"Narendra Modi, the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate in 2014 General elections, had promised to consider and fulfill the demands of the displaced persons of 1947, 65 and 71. Within two years of taking over as Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has kept his promise and provided Rs 2000 crore as assistance to be distributed among the affected families residing in the state."
