Kashmiri Pandits Demand Their Inclusion In Kashmir Talks20 April 2010
Srinagar: Kashmiri Pandits today demanded that they be included as constituents in the Centre-proposed political dialogue on resolving Kashmir issue. 'Kashmiri Pandits (KPs) must receive equal consideration as full-fledged constituents in the political dialogue that the Centre plans to hold with various Kashmir entities,' a spokesman of the community told PTI after its delegation met a visiting team of the European Union here. It also accused Centre and state governments of neglecting both the non-migrant and migrant groups of the community in the process. KPs leaders like M L Bhat of Hindu Welfare Society, Vinod Pandit of All Party Migrant Coordination Committee and Sanjay K Tickoo of Kashmir Pandit Sangarsh Samiti told the EU team to persuade the Centre to resolve the Kashmir issue through dialogue, the spokesman said.
