Amid raging political debate on pandit composite townships, Home Minister Rajnath Singh Thursday said the rehabilitation of Kashmiri pandits will be undertaken as promised.
“The decision taken by the central government regarding rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits has not changed,” Singh said. “We are concerned about the security of all Kashmiri Pandits, and all people in the Valley.”
Pertinently, Singh’s remarks came after Mufti Thursday told the Assembly: “Government has no plans to set up separate clusters for settlement of Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley.”
Well before opposition leader Omar Abdullah tweeted Mufti’s “U-Turn”—separatists said creation of such settlements “is an Israeli ploy and RSS has take inspiration from that”.
Clarifying his government’s stand, Sayeed said, “I have told the Union Home Minister that they (KPs) cannot live separately (in Kashmir Valley) and they will have to live together.”
