Kashmir birth right of migrants, will ensure their return: Dy CM
Terming the return of Kashmiri migrants to valley as their "birth right", Jammu and Kashmir minister Nirmal Singh on Tuesday said the state governmnet was firm on rehabilitating them.
"All the people in the House have unanimously passed the resolution and decided that these people (migrants) should be brought back to Kashmir valley and they should be rehabilitated there with honour, dignity and sense of security. Not only the government but the whole opposition is on one page on this," he told reporters here.
"Return of Kashmiri Migrants, including Pandits, Muslims and Sikhs is on our agenda as it is part of Agenda of Alliance. We have identified lands at 3-4 places in Kashmir (for setting up clusters). We are working on that," the Deputy Chief Minister said.
"Kashmir is their birth right since centuries together.
It is their birth right to come back and settle in Valley.
They are not able to go to their ancestral places because of the security threat so the government has made a plan to rehabilitate them in clusters and finally they shall be able to look after their properties and the left out houses," he said.
The BJP leader ruled out that the state government shelved the plan of setting up clusters for the migrants under the separatists pressure.
