While the 1984 anti-Sikh riots are being highlighted prominently in the Lok Sabha elections, the Ludhiana Sikh Migrant Welfare Board has asked all the Ludhiana candidates to make their stand clear on the demands of the victims. They say that a large number of genuine victims have never been allotted flats as per the government promise to date.
Kartar Singh Patna, chairman of the board, stated that in 2006, Rs 2 lakh from the PM relief fund was announced for each family. But that had not been given to all the families to date. A vigilance inquiry in 2010 found numerous frauds and recommended a further probe.
Kanwaljeet Singh Monga, president of this board, said, “We want to know from the candidates if they will be helping the victims in getting relief funds and for allotment of flats. Despite allotment by the district administration, a large number of victims are yet to get possession of flats. There should be uniformity in relief and rehabilitation.”
Ajit Pal Singh, general secretary of this board, said that a large number of fake victims were occupying flats. “We want to know what action the candidates will initiate for curbing the problem of encroachment.”
The board members also demanded constitution of a board at state as well as national level for the 1984 riot victims for redressal of their grievances.
