Jammu : The National Conference on Monday demanded from the Centre to fix a time-bound roadmap for the safe, honourable and dignified return of Kashmiri Pandit to the Valley.

The NC’s Minority Cell sought the Union government’s intervention to the issue, saying the forced and painful exodus continues to haunt the displaced Kashmiri Pandits who continue to be refugees in their own country for the past over three decades .

The National Conference cell also demanded strict implementation of the relevant laws to ensure that the Kashmiri Pandits leaving in exile outside the Union Territory, numbering over six lakh, do not have to resort to “distress sell” of their moveable or immoveable property left behind.

“We are seeking humane approach towards resolving the issues confronting over six lakh displaced community. The Centre should chalk out a time-bound roadmap for their safe, honourable and dignified return,” National Conference Minority Cell president M K Yogi said.
