State Times NewsJAMMU: The Kashmiri Pandit (KP) Sabha Jammu on Thursday hailed Lt Governor Manoj Sinha for expediting recruitment process under PM package for displaced community.In a press statement issued here, KP Sabha President, K K Khosa said that during his last meeting with the Lt Governor, the LG had assured that all remaining posts under PM package, announced way back in 2008, would be filled up expeditiously. “We are grateful that notification for recruitment for remaining 1,997 posts has been issued with a time-line. The challenge is proper adherence of time-line as our past experience is pathetic in this respect. The process will also address problems of non-migrants to some extent, who are on a fast unto death in Srinagar for past few days,” he added.The Sabha further expressed gratitude that construction work of transit accommodation for package employees is also sought, to be completed on war footing. The acquisition of land for the purpose would have to be monitored by the Lt Governor himself to remove any bottlenecks in this regard, he added.The KP Sabha further requested that security and restoration work of places of worship need immediate attention and the Lt Governor had also assured that the same would be done on priority. “Restoration work of Raghunath temple has been taken up in right earnest which has been appreciated by entire community. The work on other vulnerable shrines and temples may also be taken up urgently,” he said, urging the Lt Governor to remove all apprehensions of community and bring back the core issue of return and rehabilitation in the valley to front burner besides discussing matter with the community representatives so that a pragmatic and viable solution can be finalised.Meanwhile, the KP Sabha has condemned assassination of Bhupinder Singh, BDC Chairman at Khag district of Budgam, by terrorists and requested that the culprits should be booked immediately.
