The Centre on Wednesday said Kashmiri pandit migrants would be consulted on issues regarding their return to the valley and rehabilitation.
“Kashmiri pandit migrants will be consulted on every issue regarding their return to the valley...I have heard your problems, concerns and apprehensions and will address them faithfully, sincerely and to the best of my ability. My focus will be on results,” Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said while interacting with a group of migrants at Nagrota Camp in Jagti, 15 km from here.
Earlier in the day, the Home Minister held meeting with members of the Apex committee of Kashmiri pandits at Jagti satellite township where flats are being constructed for the migrants.
Talking to reporters later, Mr. Chidambaram, who was on a one-day visit to the city, said the construction of 2,160 flats would be completed in the township by December and the remaining 2,050 flats will be ready by May 2010.
During the meet, the Apex committee members raised various issues concerning the displaced Kashmiri pandits.
They demanded immediate implementation of employment package and enhancement of cash relief to the migrants.
The Home Minister said he would discuss the committee’s demand with Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
