Panun Kashmir organises "Kashmiri Pandit Nirvasan Samvat-29 Programme"

Jammu, April 15, (Scoop News)- Panun Kashmir organised its Annual Executive Council Meeting and the "Kashmiri Pandit Nirvasan Samvat-29 Programme" at Jammu today. The function was presided over by Prof. M.L.Raina and the proceedings were conducted by Kamal Bagati, Chairman of the Organizing Committee and P.K.Bhan.
The meeting was attended by the members of the Executive Council and special invitees followed by the Kashmiri Pandit Nirvasan Samvat-29 event. Ramesh Arora, MLC and Ashwani Sharma, former MLA were the special guests in the function while Commodore (Retd.) Sardar D.S.Sodhi was the guest of honour in the programme. The programme was inaugurated by lighting 29 earthen lamps symbolizing 29 years of exile of the Kashmiri Pandit community.
On the occasion, the newly elected President, Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, announced a Team of office bearers of Daughters of Panun Kashmir comprising Moheni Raina as the Patron, Dr. Nidhi Tikoo Mitra, the new Chairperson, Vimla Chrungoo, Secretary, Dr. Ritu Bakshi, Vice Chairperson and Vijay Saproo, Asstt. Secretary. He also announced the prestigious annual Award named Pt. Amaranth Vaishnavi Award-2018 in favour of Utpal Kaul, veteran Senior leader of KP community. The coveted Award will be actually conferred upon him on 30th April 2018 at Jammu.
On the occasion, Ashwani Kumar in his address reiterated the seven-point Charter of Demands presented by the leadership of Panun Kashmir. He said that the three points raised by the Lawyer community of Jammu are genuine and represent the geo-political aspirations of the Jammu region. The CBI demand for an impartial probe in the Kathua rape and murder case is not only justified but it is the only course left keeping in view the severity of the case and the composition and working of CB teams. The Tribal Department order of the J&K government is ultra vires of the constitutional scheme of things and allows illegal land grabbing in the Jammu region. The issue of continuous stay of Rohangya illegal immigrants in Jammu is developing into a very serious threat to the security and law & order situation in the J&K state and Jammu province in particular. Their comforts in their stay are being taken care of by the political class and some NGOs and their detection and deportation is contested and also given a communal colour. Panun Kashmir takes strong objection to the silence of the political class and the government on the issue. They demand that necessary action to detect and deport these illegal immigrants be taken up with the Union Home Ministry on an urgent priority.
Ramesh Arora, MLC in his remarks emphasized the need of coordinated struggle to achieve the desired results. He said that the Kashmiri Pandits for the last three decades have shown their resilience and a keen intent to live and exist as a community dedicated to the cultural roots of Kashmir. He said that the resettlement issue of Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir is a very important concern for which Panun Kashmir is committed and is working with perfect intent. He also said that the people of Jammu appreciate the struggle of the community in exile and we support the cause of the Pandits as always.
Ashwani Sharma, former MLA appreciated the role of the Kashmiri Pandit community in bringing awareness in Jammu about the health and education scenario. He said that he remains an ardent votary of Panun Kashmir ever since it was formed and has worked jointly with the PK Team in the past. He referred to the Amaranth Agitation days and said that Dogra and Kashmiri Pandit community have common national goals. He offered his services to the community to take its struggle to the logical conclusion.
Prof. M.L.Raina in his address of blessings asked Panun Kashmir to evolve a strategy to take the message of the struggle in exile to new horizons and focus on the organizational and ideological plank in all circumstances.
Commodore (Retd.) D.S.Sodhi expressed his full support to the idea of Panun Kashmir and said that Panun Kashmir needs to play yet a bigger role in future. Its leadership has made a deep impact on the political, strategic and security scenario of the state. Panun Kashmir is a reality so far as the goals of the struggle are concerned.
Dr. Nidhi Tikoo Mitra, Chairperson-DOPK said that the ladies wing would open new vistas for the women folk of the society and said that Homeland demand as propounded by the organization is the only panacea for the miseries of exiles.
