Jammu, January 10:
PoK DPs indefinite Chain Dharna that is being held under the banner of S. O. S. International – An organization for PoK Displaced Persons today entered into Day-15 at Bakshi Nagar, Jammu. A team of six members from Rajouri district headed by Pt. Lekh Raj Raina and accompanied by Capt. Ravinder Kumar Sasan, Rajinder Sharma, Balbir Singh, Jyoti Saroop, and Sub Kewal Krishan sat on dharna to continue their struggle for getting their legitimate rights.
Mr. Chander Mohan Gupta, Mayor Jammu City today visited the dharna sthal. Rajiv Chuni Chairman S. O. S. International presented a charter of demands to the Mayor; Mr. Gupta assured the dharna holders and Mr. Chuni that their cause will be taken up with the Governor and other concerned authorities for the resolution of the demands.
Pt. Lekh Raj Raina has said that PoK DPs are agitating today for their legitimate demands which have been denied by all the successive governments for the last more than seven decades. “This indefinite dharna will take a serious turn in due course which will be followed by harsh measures including fast-unto-death till the final goal is not achieved. It is shameful for this deaf and dumb government that despite severe chill PoK DPs are fighting for their demands under the constitutional rights and sitting on roads but the elected MP’s are sleeping in their cozy bungalows and none has cared to take our cause with govt for its logical conclusion”, he added.
Mr. Raina also alleged that as and when the dates of elections approaches nearer political parties allure these displaced persons by showing green pastures and after winning the elections they disappear like gone with wind. Mr. Raina further stated that we have chosen this time intentionally to start our agitation to teach these law makers and govt a lesson either to full fill our demands or we will perish you in the elections. “Participation of the people enmass from Poonch, Rajouri, Nowshera, Sunderbani, Kathua, Udhampur, R. S. Pura, Vijaypur and Samba is taking place at Dharna sthal and insisting hard to take harsh step against this shameful govt. and if need so arises we will acceded too.” He added.
Mr. Raina warned the state/centre govt that we will not budge even an inch and no compromise will be made till we achieve our goal for the achievement of this destitute society of displaced people.
