Early Times Report

Srinagar, Sept 21: Fast-unto-death by Kashmiri Pandit Sangarsh Samiti (KPSS) president Sanjay Kumar Tickoo in support of Samiti demands entered second day on Monday though a two-member delegation from District Administration met him on Sunday evening. Mr Tickoo said at 1930 hrs, two members from the office of Deputy Commissioner, Srinagar, met him at Ganesh Mandi Ganapatyar Habba Kadal in the old city, where he is sitting on the fast.
'I had detailed conversation with the team members regarding our long-pending demands,' Mr Tickoo told UNI today.
He said, 'we have handed over the file of our demands to team members.'
'We informed the team about alleged sabotage by Disaster Management Relief, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction (DMRR&R) Department for the past two years despite orders by High Court, Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) for the appointment of 500 unemployed youth of the community,' he said.
He said 800 left out non-migrant Kashmiri pandit families living in different parts of the valley were being 'punished' by the DMRR&R. 'Since abrogation of Article 370 and 35 A, we the non-Migrant Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir Valley are facing harassment and isolation at the hands of Relief Department, he alleged.
He said despite multiple directions from High Court and recommendations from the Central Government through the MHA, Relief Department refused to implement them. He said 808 families stayed in Kashmir when majority members of the community left Kashmir Valley in early 90s. He said a delegation of KPSS on August 27, 2020 met Lt Governor at Raj Bhawan, Srinagar and submitted a detailed memorandum and apprised him about the alleged conspiracy hatched by Relief Department against the Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir Valley.
Mr Tickoo said the Lt Governor assured that necessary steps will be taken on priority to sort out the issue which is related to the survival and existence of 808 families. But till date no action stands taken on the issues, he alleged. Mr Tickoo said there are 500 educated unemployed youth and 69 have already crossed the age limit and become over age.
He said, 'Our demands included Vigilance inquiry against the officers and officials of the Relief Department for deliberately stalling and sabotaging Relief and Rehabilitation of Pandits living in Kashmir Valley and misusing their official positions to harm the community members, implementation of High Court directions and recommendations of the Ministry of Home Affairs regarding Jobs to the unemployed 500 educated Kashmiri Pandit youth, one time age relaxation.'
Other demands were easy and stress free process of providing bonafide certificates to all Pandits, monthly financial aid to 808 non-migrant Kashmiri Pandit families living in Kashmir Valley, providing accommodation to all deserving Kashmiri Pandit as per recommendations of the Ministry of Home Affairs and extension of benefits of Migrant Welfare Fund to the non-migrant Kashmiri Pandits living in Kashmir Valley
