Jammu Tawi, December 5
MJR-47 (Movement for Justice for Refugees of 1947 from POJK) today welcomed the clarification given by Dr Jatinder Singh, MOS in P.M Office regarding release of Rs. 2000 crores package in favour of POJK-1947 DP’s as well as Chamb 1947, 65&71. As per press statement, all the refugee organisations have been seeking clarity regarding package as there is still no word about the total amount relief sanctioned per family. Even Dr. Jatinder Singh’s statement still lacks full clarification. Apart from the monetary package, other important components of recommendations such as reservation for wards of DP’s in technical institutions all over the country, special employment package, inclusion of left over families and other is still not clear. It is strange that Dr. Jatinder Singh takes credit and lambasted others for seeking clarification but himself does not seem to be clear about the package. Refugees welcomed if Rs. 2000 crores released is an installment & not full package. We urge that the Govt. should announce the total amount sanctioned and if they so desire let it be disbursed in instalments which in our way of thinking is also unjustified. They also hailed Dr. Singh’s declaration of waving off affidavit for which we have been pleading & given no. of representations to all authorities concerned.
