The Kashmiri Pandit (KP) employees, who have been on a chain hunger strike for the last 12 days, on Tuesday held a protest in Jammu and accused the government of “neglecting their plight”. The employees are refusing to join their duties in Kashmir after their transit camps were allegedly attacked by stone pelting mobs following the killing of militant commander Burhan Wani.

They accused the government of adopting “different yardsticks” vis-à-vis “peaceful people and anti-national elements.”

“The KP employees met Relief and Rehabilitation Commissioner and expressed dismay over removal of their tents and demanded they be allowed to continue their peaceful protest,” president All Migrant Employees Association Kashmir (AMEAK) Rubin Saproo said.

A delegation also called on Relief and Rehabilitation Minister Basharat Bhukhari and apprised him of the “concerns of employees”.

    Kashmiri pundits should eat their food and then protest the policies of the late Nehru and his crooked daughter and g children, Democracy cannot solve the Kashmir problems, it has to be done with total dictatorship and in a ruthless manner. Kashmir has to be re-poted with Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and other religions, there should be no Muslim majority in this State,
