Thse Delhi NCR unit forwarded unanimously some recommendations to the Executive Council of Panun Kashmir for consideration. Utpal Kaul, Sr. leader in his speech emphasized the need for taking up projects that can bring a positive change and betterment in the situation in which the exiled community is presently living. He said that there can be no compromise on the issue of mitigating the sufferings of a larger section of the community which could not coup-up with the circumstances till date. Panun Kashmir will be making efforts to organise the down-to-earth programmes to include all sections in the struggle. Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, President-PK in his address said that Panun Kashmir is duty bound to raise issues that have larger bearing on the fate and future of the nationalist forces living in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is important to have live contact with all those forces that belong to the state and are scattered throughout the country and abroad due to ethnic cleansing and special situation in the state. There can be no denying the fact that the committed activists have over the last three decades brought a number of positive changes in the overall situation by their contributions. But there is a large volume of work left undone. Our primary concern presently is on two important aspects of the situation. One pertains to the political scenario and the other to the humanitarian issue of the community. The urgent recruitment of the PM package employees awaits formal orders. The issue pertaining to the “categories” in the recruitment process needs to be resolved as urgently as possible. With this issue, the one-time compensation settlement of the over-aged youth has also assumed priority.
Next, on the political front, the Article 35A and Article 370 are on the top agenda and their continuance has brought undesired upheavals in the state. Panun Kashmir is eagerly awaiting the Apex Court judgement and the moves of the Government of India in this regard. The struggle for the establishment of Homeland is to be taken to the newer heights in the immediate future. The 2019 election scenario is also to be taken into account while strategizing the next course. The demand of Homeland is the only viable and tenable demand which will take care of the community’s geo-political aspirations in all circumstances. We express our gratitude to the valiant security forces for their bravery and sacrifice which they have exhibited while fighting terrorism in Kashmir. Panun Kashmir fully supports their endeavours that protect the nation from the evil designs of Pakistan, ISI, terrorist regime and the fundamentalist and communal separatist elements.
