Don’t politicize rehabilitation of Pandits: Tarigami

KL Report


CPI (M) senior leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Wednesday asked Central and the State governments to clear confusion created by their contradictory statements on rehabilitation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir.

Reacting to the latest statement made by the union home minister Rajnath Singh, the CPI (M) leader according to party spokesman has said that “if the Union Home Minister’s statement is true, then the same belies the Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s claim made on the floor of Assembly that no land will be made available for creation for separate colonies for migrant Pandits in Kashmir.”

“Both the Union and the State government must clear confusion that has been created by their contradictory claims on this very sensitive issue,” Tarigami said and added that Pandits are the part of composite pluralistic culture of the state and any move aimed at segregating Kashmiri society will prove counter productive.

He said that the issue of rehabilitation of Pandits is purely a humanitarian issue and the same should be resolved through purposeful dialogue between different communities of the valley.
