Sunderbani, April 30
SOS International-An organization for Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) Displaced Persons (DPs) today castigated main political parties for keeping blind eye and callous attitude towards the plight of PoK Displaced Persons.
While addressing the PoK DPs Rally today at Sunderbani, SOS International chairman Rajiv Chuni said that PoK DPs are fed up with inhumane approach of key political parties of State and Centre due to which PoK DPs are constrained to spend their lives in troubles without having basic amenities and this time, they should not keep any expectation that PoK DPs will cast their vote in their favor. “It is quite painful that there is no helping hand for the most impoverished community of the world and what will be more unfortunate that their own leadership has abandoned them”, Chuni maintained.
S. O. S. International Chairman further said that the tiny ex-gratia amount has not come over night; it was outcome of continuous endeavor of S. O. S. International. “Political parties failed to bring much awaited respite as they have tried to grind their own axe by utilizing us for their political gains. PoK DPs are remembered during election times, fake and tall claims of their rehabilitation are announced, they are shown castles in air but once elections are over, all political parties get disappeared. It is occurring because PoK DPs don’t have a political representative, had there been representatives from PoK DPs community, then the situation would have become different, he stated.
He further said that it has been more than a year since Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has taken the reins of State in her hands. “Since she has taken the oath of office, our organization sought time to meet her and apprised her with our issues but till today we have not been given time. CM’s advisors have not let us to meet her. Due to advisors, Kashmir is burning and they also don’t want that PoK DPs could be heard at any forum. Advisors of CM keep the concern of a particular community and it is not concealed to anyone”, he alleged. He further said that there is limit of tolerance to bear atrocities of any form but now, PoK DPs will not tolerate any injustice against them.
