Hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi for sanctioning Rs 2,000 crore package for people displaced in 1947, refugees of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) on Thursday said the package amount should not be seen as the final figures as a total of Rs 9,200 crore was required to settle all of them.

Members of Jammu and Kashmir Sharnarthi Action Committee (JKSAC), an organisation representing the displaced members of the PoK, expressed their gratitude toward Modi for sanctioning a package of Rs 2,000 crore for the displaced people.

“We express our gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for sanctioning a package of Rs 2,000 crore for the displaced people from the Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) of 1947,” JKSAC vice-president Amrik Singh said. He said the package of Rs 2,000 crore should not be seen as the final settlement as the total amount required to settle the displaced people of PoK was Rs 9,200 crore.

“The Prime Minister while sanctioning Rs 2,000 crore had himself said that this was just a beginning and not the final settlement,” Singh said.
