JKNPP holds massive protest at Jantar Mantar seeking relief & compensation for Jammu (Talwara) Migrants at par with Kashmir Migrants

Intensifying the momentum for ensuring the rights and justice to Jammu (Talwara) migrants Panthers Party held a massive protest demonstration at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi spearheaded by Chairman of JKNPP, Shri Harsh Dev Singh, State President-JKNPP Shri Balwant Singh Mankotia and State President Young Panthers, Shri Yashpaul Kundal along with more than 500 activists here on Tuesday.  The indignant protestors raised slogans of-“Jammu migrants se Bhed Bhaav…Band karo, band karo”, “Talwara migrants ke saath….Insaaf karo, insaaf karo”, “Dokhey aur Zulam Ki Rajneeti …Nahin Chalegi, Nahin Chalegi” and “State government… Hai Hai”. A delegation led by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh, Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia and Mr. Yashpaul Kundal under police escort, submitted a detailed memorandum to the Union Minister for Home, Shri Rajnath Singh for seeking immediate relief and compensation for Talwara Migrants at par with Kashmir Migrants. Later, hundreds of protestors led by Balwant Singh Mankotia marched towards the Parliament but they were stopped and restrained by the Delhi Police from proceeding further. Moreover, Mr. Mankotia along with six Panthers Party leaders namely Rajiv Jolly Khosla, S. Paramjit Singh Marshall, Gagan Pratap Singh, Sham Gorkha, Neeraj Gupta, S. Randhir Singh were arrested and detained in the Parliament Street Police Station.

While addressing the huge gathering Mr. Harsh Dev Singh said that more than 2000 families of Jammu (Talwara) migrants have been languishing in Talwara  in District Reasi who were forced to flee from their respective homes because of the  prevalent militancy .He said that the Panthers party fought against the J&K government for six years in the Supreme Court yelling for  the justice to be delivered to these families and the Apex court in 2006 finally directed the State government to pay all the arrears amounting to 21 crores to the Jammu migrants and provide the relief to them at par with the Kashmiri migrants but  to the dismay no penny has been paid to them so far. In fact, they have been ignored, forgotten and discriminated by the Central and the State governments.

Mr. Harsh Dev Singh pointed out that earlier BJP government in the Centre raised relief for Kashmiri Pandits from Rs. 400/- to Rs. 1000/- per person per month and Rs. 1600/- to 4000/- per family per month and now it has been raised from Rs.4000/- to Rs. 10,000/- per family per month where as Jammu migrants were completely kept out of this package. Moreover, the Central & the State Govts. released a special package for Kashmir Migrants for their rehabilitation in Kashmir Valley with sanctions of full expenses of their new houses and exclusive Kashmir Migrants Colony in the valley but on the contrary the Jammu migrants were ignored once again with the Governments of India and J&K State refusing even to provide them financial assistance to rebuild their houses which were destroyed by terrorists during terrorists from 1998 to 2002.

Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia vociferously exhorted the state government to provide them relief in cash and kind at par with kashmiri Pandit migrants as directed by the Supreme Court along with all the arrears and the package which has been provided to the latter for their return and rehabilitation in their native villages with the guarantee that the relief shall continue in their favour for five years till their lands turns worth cultivation. He also demanded that all the unemployed Talwara migrants’ youth and children should be provided the same package, jobs and educational facilities which has been provided to the Kashmiri Pandit Migrants. Mankotia said that these migrants are also facing the wrath of acute shortage of power and water supply which has added to the woes of ailing, women and children and demanded early restoration of their regular supply in the camps at Talwara. Mankotia finally exhorted the Union government to provide all the relief and compensation to the Jammu (Talwara) migrants or else Panthers party shall intensify its stir in the days to come.

Mr. Yashpaul Kundal said that deprivation of Jammu region migrants in the matter of relief and rehabilitation is not only discriminatory against Jammu region but constitutes the highest from of huamn right violation. He regretted that the BJP government which had been creating a lot of hue and cry on the pathetic plight of Jammu migrants had completely disregarded them and denying them the much needed relief despite the Apex Court directions.

Prominent among those who led the protest included Balwan Singh, Chairman-Migrants Committee, Jagdev Singh, S. Paramjit Singh Marshall, Chamel Singh, Sumitra Devi, Taro Devi, Pawan Singh, Mahinder Singh, Gagan Pratap Singh, Sham Gorkha, Raghubir Singh, Sukhjit Singh, Arun Khajuria, Rajeshwar Singh, Udhay Veer Singh, Nirmal Kishore, Romesh Khajuria, S.
