JAMMU, Jan 28: The displaced persons from Pak occupied Jammu and Kashmir (PoJK) on Tuesday held protest against the slow process of disbursement of relief amount sanctioned by the Prime Minister and ignoring other demands of the DPs.
A large number of displaced community members under the banner of PoJK DPs Front 1947, 65 and 1971, led by its president , Capt ( Retd) Yudhvir Singh Chib and Woman Wing President, Sakandya Devi assembled at Exhibition Ground, near Press Club here this morning and started protest. Capt Yudhvir while addressing media refugee leader further said that the Government offices do not have the record and in some offices it is lying in worst condition. Two times the Committee deployed for disbursement of relief has been changed but the miseries of the DPs have increased instead of being minimized.
Capt Chib said that Rs 5.50 lakh is just first installment and Govt should provide Rs 30 lakh amount as recommended by JPC. He also demanded political reservation for the DPs and said at least 12 reserved seats for them out of 24 lying in PoJK should be given to them.
