Kashmiri migrant employees stage protest

Kashmiri migrant employees, who were given government jobs in Kashmir under Prime Minister’s package, Saturday staged a protest here demanding early completion of residential accommodation for them.

 The employees, most of them Kashmiri pandits, assembled at Pratap Park here to stage the protest in support of their demands.

The main demand of the employees was independent accommodation for all 6,000 under PM package for employees, in a stipulated time frame. One of the protesting employees said nine years have passed since they were employed but the government has failed in providing them accommodation.
