Will resolve Kashmiri Pandits’ service-related issues within a week: Div Com

VESSU (QAZIGUND) — Divisional Commissioner Kashmir P K Pole on Tuesday visited the protesting Kashmiri Pandits at Vessu in the south Kashmir area of Qazigund and assured them that “all the service-related issues will be resolved within a week’s time” while as other demands will be taken up with top officials.

As per the news agency Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Pole, who IGP Kashmir Vijay accompanied, met protesting Kashmiri Pandits at Vessu camp. The protestors handed over the memorandum to the Divisional Commissioner.

A few Kashmiri Pandits were holding placards displaying the slogans “Relocate us to Jammu.” The Kashmiri Pandit community, especially those working in Kashmir under Prime Minister’s Rehabilitation Package (PMRP), are up in arms for the past one week in the wake of the killing of the employee Rahul Bhat at Tehsil office Chadoora.

Addressing the protestors, the Divisional Commissioner said that all the issues related to the services of Kashmiri Pandits would 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 Kashmiri Pandits and assured them all the possible help.

He said that militants have lost their strength in 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.
