Divisional Commissioner Kashmir P K Pole today visited the protesting Kashmiri Pandits at Vessu in southern area of Qazigund and assured them that all the service related issues will be resolved within a week.
As per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Pole, who was accompanied by IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar, met protesting KPs at Vessu camp. The KP’s handed over the memorandum to the Divisional Commissioner. A few KPs were holding pla-cards displaying slogans—“Relocate us to Jammu.” The KP community, especially those working in Kashmir under Prime Minister’s Rehabilitation Package (PMRP) are up in arms since past one week in the wake of killing of the KP employee Rahul Bhat at Tehsil office Chadoora in Budgam.
Addressing the protesting KPs, the Divisional Commissioner said that all the issues related to the services of KPs will be resolved within a week as steps are already afoot.
“I assure you that your issues related to jobs, place of postings, districts of postings, promotions etc will be resolved within a week,” Pole told protesting KPs and assured them all the possible help.
He said that militants have lost their strength of targeting big security installations which they used to do earlier and now they are attacking soft targets including unarmed policemen who visit homes on leave. “These killings are meant to create fear psychosis among minorities. I can tell you that the security environment in Kashmir is not what it was some 10 years ago. There is a lot of improvement,” he said—(KNO)
