Jammu Tawi, April 15
BJP State General Secretary Dr. Narinder Singh, while addressing media persons at party headquarter said that the BJP stands committed to mitigate the problems of PoJK refugees and is fulfilling its poll promise made to them.
While addressing the gathering, Dr. Narinder Singh said that the successive government of Congress at the Centre only betrayed the PoJK refugees and did not bother to listen to their grievances and extend any kind of help.
The BJP formed government under Atal Behari Vajpayee for the first time and it displayed concern towards these refugees when rupees 1.5 lakh each family was released as land deficiency financial compensation.
Dr. Narinder Singh made it clear that the package of rupees 2000 crores, which is under the process of distribution among the beneficiaries, is not final and the BJP will continue to seek more from the Union government.
He further said that the process and the required documentary proofs will also result in enlisting of the details of PoJK refugees and any future benefit will be directly transferred into their individual account.
The General Secretary further said that the party activists have been voluntarily helping the applicants for availing the financial package and any PoJK refugee, who comes across any problem in getting his or her claim case processed, can contact the party without any hesitation.
BJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan and Refugee Cell State Convenor Pt. Ashok Khajuria were also present in the press conference.
