Kashmiri Pandits Demand ‘Central Government Announce’ A smart City For Them In kashmir :- On Saturday, an organisation representing Kashmiri Pandits demanded that the Central Government announce a smart city in Kashmir for the displaced community members who have been living a life of ‘refugees in their own country’.
President of YAIKS – Ram K Bhat said that we were expecting that the Modi government would have announced a smart city for displaced community in the 3rd round announcement of 27 more smart cities. But unfortunately we have been ignored again. This is fact that we are the worst victims of the ongoing terrorism. We are living as refugees in our own country since 1990.
He added that a total of 60 out of 100 smart cities have been announced this year without any consideration of Kashmiris Pandits(KP) community.
He added that we appeal to PM Modi and Union Housing and Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu that as per their assurances they should announce the smart city for displaced community without any delay in the Jammu and Kashmir.
He added that the organisation said the government has sent out ‘feelers’ of rehabilitation packages but never drawn any comprehensive long term plan for repatriation of Kashmiri Pandits.
