Release pending financial package of Rs 25 lakhs for DPs: Manjit Singh urges GoI
Seek on spot recruitment in paramilitary, Indian army for DPs, refugee youth
Ramgarh, February 03 (Scoop News)- Apni Party Provincial President, Jammu, and Former Minister, S. Manjit Singh has appealed to the Govt of India to release the pending Rs 25 lakhs financial package for the Displaced Persons.

The Former Minister was addressing a public meeting at Khour Salaria in Block Ramgarh. The meeting was organized by District President Legal Cell, Adv Sahil Bharti, while Block President Ramgarh, Bachan Lal, Som Lal and others were present.

Addressing the meeting, he said that the DPs are among the worst affected people who were displaced from PoJK and Chhamb areas following hostility between two countries.

“These people were compelled by the circumstances to abandon their own fertile agricultural land, residential houses and commercial places and settled in the border belt of Jammu region. In this situation, it becomes imperative for the Govt to come forward and help these DPs to re-settle with the financial support,” he said.

He further said that the previous Union Govt had sanctioned Rs 25 lakhs per family of DPs that had to be released as a financial package to them but Rs 5.5. was released and unfortunately this amount too, could not reach all the families.

As far as Rs 25 lakhs financial package is concerned, he said, that is still pending with the Union Govt and hence, the Govt should not delay and release it without further delay so that the DPs can be provided financial support to revive their livelihood.

Meanwhile, he also referred to the under development in the DP villages and demanded that the authorities should constitute a team of officials to visit the border villages and ensure development.

He further demanded that the Govt should hold a fast track recruitment process for the DPs and Refugees in the border belt of Jammu region.

“The unemployment among the DPs and Refugees youth has increased and hence, the Govt should hold on the spot recruitment in the paramilitary and Indian Army for these youth,” he demanded.

Earlier, threadbare discussions were also held with regard to development and other issues of Ramgarh.
