JAMMU: Showing intense anguish and pain against government over the cruel attitude of handling PoK DPs issues, a protest was held under the banner of SOS International-an organisation for PoK displaced persons at Maheshpura Chowk, Bakshi Nagar, here on Sunday.
The protest was spearheaded by SOS International Chairman, Rajiv Chuni to mark their resentment against government for its non seriousness for PoK DPs.
Wearing black strips on forehead, PoK DPs sat on road to show their pain as they have been bearing for the last seven decades.
The protest lasted for several hours resulted in choking of whole Jammu City.
While addressing the protestors, Rajiv Chuni said that government did injustice to PoK DPs community who are the first ever victims of J and K problem by making false promises to them.
He said that government has everything for other Valley migrants but it seems government has nothing for PoK DPs adding, this sort of behaviour must be ended by giving some respite to this deprived community. Apart from cash relief to PoK DPs, government must give its nod to other recommendations of the State Cabinet, he said.
“Modi government has totally failed to understand the plights of PoK DPs even after one and half years of its formation in the Centre,” he said adding that Modi announced only Rs 2,000 crore instead of proposed Rs 9,096 crore by previous State Cabinet.
Chuni further said that PoK DPs community is ready to give any sacrifice for the justice which has been delayed for the last seven decades.
He further said that Urban Local Bodies (ULB) and Panchayat elections are scheduled to be held.
“PoK DPs won’t cast a single vote to BJP until and unless their demands are fulfilled before announcement of ULB elections. PoK DPs have come to know about their vote power and if they make king they can also bring that king to dust. He further said that to get justice and rights, we will not sit silent and decisive struggle has been started adding that, our tolerance crossed every limit and now do and die battle has begun either we will get justice or will give sacrifices” he added.
Others who addressed protestors were Dr. Gurmeet Singh, Prof. J.S Mangal, Lalit Kumar, Roshan Lal, Harbans Sabharwal, O.P Khajuria, Tarvinder Singh, Sanjay Kohli, Ravinder Gupta, Gurmeet Singh Mickle, Sharda Devi, Prof. Narinder Sharma, Raj Kumar, Choudhary Bishan, Sumit Gupta and Vijay Sharma.
