STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Panun Kashmir took stock of the recent political developments and urged the BJP led Government at the Centre for abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A. In the meeting held here on Sunday, Virender Raina, President Panun Kashmir, while speaking on the occasion, said that Kashmiri Pandits are a unique case in the history where a community was forced to become refugees in their own country. The meeting was attended by Kamal Bagati General Secretary (Org), Ashok Chrungoo Treasurer, Vimla Chrungoo, Secretary-DOPK, Sameer Bhat, Convenor PK Youth, P.K Bhan, P.N Pandita Sneh Ganhar and G.L Drabu. Raina said that the exodus of a peace loving community like Kashmiri Pandits is one of the greatest tragedies of modern India. He added that the Indian State failed to preserve and protect a tiny minority of Pandits in Kashmir. He said that the Modi government has revived the hope in the community that the terrorism in Kashmir would be wiped off lock, stock and barrel and the natives of Kashmir would again be able to settle in their homeland. He added that the political ecosystem today was the most favourable in decades for the final settlement of the KP issues. He also added that for the reversal of genocide the illegitimate pillars of constitutional mechanisations like Articles 370 and 35A must go and there should be reframing of the constituencies and delimitation needs to be revisited. “The resettlement of Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir is a political issue of huge significance and no ad-hoc measures would be acceptable to the displaced community,” he said. Kamal Bagati, General Secretary said that Kashmiri Pandits as the indigenous people of Kashmir have the first and the foremost right on the territory of Kashmir and the day is not far when our aspirations would be realised in full measure. Maargdarshan Resolution 1991 is the only loadstar for realisation of Homeland in Kashmir, he emphasized. Panun Kashmir sought a dialogue be held with the credible leadership of the community which has contributed towards the cause of the society all these three decades of exile.
