State Times NewsJAMMU: Slamming administration for its apathetic attitude towards KPs in Valley, leading to fast-unto-death by a community member, the All India Kashmiri Samaj (AIKS) expressed solidarity with Kashmiri Pandit Sangharsh Samiti (KPSS) in its struggle. They urge the LG to intervene into the matter for fulfilling all genuine demands of the community people living in valley.During an emergency meeting convened virtually to take stock of the situation, presided over by its President Col Tej K Tikoo, the core group criticised the administration for neglect of Kashmiri Hindu Society staying in valley in difficult conditions. “Despite orders issued by various authorities, the lower-rung functionaries of Government do not implement the orders in letter & spirit. AIKS deplores such insensitivity towards remnants of our community left in the Valley. Dealing compassionately with Kashmiri Hindus who did not leave Kashmir in 1989-90, will reflect the Government’s desire to convince the Displaced community for returning back to valley,” the members added.AIKS appealed to the Lt Governor to save life of community leader, Sanjay Tikoo, who is on fast-unto-death at Ganesh temple (Ganpatiyar) at Srinagar, along with some community activists in support of their demands.Their demands of the protesting KP leaders included, holding enquiry against officials of Relief & Rehabilitation Department for stalling and sabotaging relief and rehabilitation of KPs living in valley, implementation of High Court directions and recommendation of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs regarding provision of jobs to unemployed non-migrant youth, one-time relaxation in age for employment on compassionate grounds, providing Bonafide certificates as per SRO-425, providing relief to 808 non-migrant families living in Kashmir, allotting accommodation to deserving people living in Kashmir etc.
