HWS stage demos to press for demands

Srinagar, Sep 1, CNS:  Non-migrant Kashmiri Pandits Tuesday again protest rally to press for their demands including proper rehabilitation, employment and financial packages for the youth and renovation of temples.

The protestors assembled under the banner of Hindu Welfare Society (HWS) at Barbar Shah and took out a rally which culminated at Press Enclave.

      They also tried to march towards to historical Ghanta Ghar, however, were not allowed by the police to proceed.

   On August 25, this year, HWS organized a similar peaceful protest rally to highlight their grievances.

Accusing the successive state and central governments of turning a "blind eye" to them, Chunni Lal, who was leading the protest march, said, "It is ironic that the government is always speaking about return of Kashmiri Pandits but never uttered a word for pandits who didn’t migrate from the Valley.

   They threatened to intensify protests in case their demands are not met forthwith. (CNS)
