JAMMU: J&K BJP State General Secretary, Dr. Narinder Singh batted for the inclusion of PoJK Refugees in the reservation benefit extended to the Pahari Speaking People.
Pertinent to mention that J&K State Cabinet approved the J&K Reservation (amendment) Bill 18 of 2014 that extends three per cent reservation to the Pahari Community.
Dr Singh said that it is a matter of appreciation that all the Paharis could enjoy the benefits which will be accorded to them after this.
But at the same time, Singh pointed out that the refugee population from PoJK which includes population from Poonch, Mirpur, Muzzafarabad, etc. must also be considered for the above benefit. He batted for their inclusion in the list citing the reason that the PoJK population has been victimized for decades together for absolute no fault of theirs and have been at the receiving end of the circumstances due to continued apathy of the governments and various departments.
Dr. Singh pointed out that BJP has always stood for their cause through odds and even. He claimed that for the very first time BJP under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken concrete steps for the settlement of all the issues of this population by taking swift measures like compensation and all.
