JAMMU: Refugees Unity Council (RUC) condemned the Governor administration for its agenda towards PoK refugees resulting in an unjustified reservation of their municipal wards in the pretext of de-limitation for Municipal elections.
“As a result of unfortunate migration in the year 1947, 36,000 refugee families as camping category and 24,000 as non camping category have to face the unbearable pains of migration and thereafter insufficient assistance by Indian rulers,” RUC leaders Aya Singh, Gurgev Singh and Kulbir Singh said in press conference here on Tuesday. On one hand, Indian rulers have reserved 24 Assembly seats for the citizens of Pak occupied area of State and in that case, the PoK refugees have a right on 11-12 such Assembly seats and on the other hand, parties like BJP and Congress are snatching our first ever Municipal representation rights by way of unjustified reservation of their wards through Governor’s administration, RUC leaders alleged.
“We are the worst sufferers after 1947 and by this act BJP and Congress have manipulated against us in the name of so-called de-limitation,” they added.
They appealed to the Governor Satya Pal Malik for justice to their democratic rights otherwise they have no option but to resent on roads to expose the BJP and Congress.
