Include PoK DPs residing outside State in cash assistance: Chuni
STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: Government must clear its stand that under which logic and calculations, 5,300 families of PoK DPs (1947) out of 31,619 families were excluded from the cash assistance as there is unprecedented resentment among the community over this injustice.
This was stated by Chairman SOS International, Rajiv Chuni while addressing a rally of PoK DPs here on Sunday.
PoK DPs staged protest against evil designs of government and carious political parties who are hell bent to adopt every such step to give more agony to PoK DPs. They raised slogans against the government and threatened serious consequences if 5,300 PoK DPs’ families are not provided with their legitimate and constitutional rights.
Flaying state government for silence over the illegal settlement of Rohingyas in Jammu city, Chuni said that Jammu and Kashmir is a sensitive State and is reeling under so many threats ranging from terrorism, communal tensions, and now Rohingyas.
“Most of these illegal immigrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh are beggars and street hawkers who are acquainted with every the nook and corner of Jammu, which in terms of security is a very big threat,” Chuni said alleging that Rohingyas have encroached the State land by way of making Jhuggis. “Hundreds of Rohingya immigrants, who were forced to leave their native land, entered India through porous borders. They have unlawfully settled in the outskirts of Jammu city during last three years or so”, he added.
Alleging conspiracy behind the settlement of these immigrants in Jammu region, Chuni said, “It has been reported that these people had clandestinely managed Permanent Resident Certificates, identity cards, ration cards and water and electricity connections for their daily needs with the help of politicians and officials in the administration.”
He said that while the Rohingyas from Myanmar and Bangladesh could manage to settle in Jammu besides Tibetan refugees enjoying voting rights in Kashmir, ironically the West Pakistan Refugees, who crossed over to Jammu to survive the massacre of partition, were still struggling for their rights since 1947.
