Jammu, Dec 19 (UNI) The Kashmiri Pandits today said that their aim is to return to the Valley and the central government should be transparent with the policies framed for the return of the displaced Pandit community to their homeland.
Speaking to newspersons at a press conference this afternoon, Dr Ajay Chrungoo, Chairman, Panun Kashmir,a major migrant Kashmiri organisation said that the Government should come out very clearly as to 'what is cooking on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir.' ''In the recent past, separatist quarters in Jammu and Kashmir, sections of Government of Pakistan and the US, NGOs are working on various aspects of the problems here in the state,'' Mr. Chrungoo said adding that sections of so called liberal intelligentsia in India have been clearly expressing that India and Pakistan are closer to a final settlement on Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that Kashmiri Hindus, who have been frontline victims of terrorism and faced a complete religious cleansing, have major stakes in the type of dispensation, which Central Government is envisaging for Jammu and Kashmir.
"We do not have the luxury of treating anything which comes out of the mouth of important persons at the helm in the Centre,"Mr Chrungoo said adding that the National Security advisor recently said in an interview on the ongoing parleys between India and Pakistan on Jammu and Kashmir that things are in the pipeline, things which are cooking, which are half cooked or three quarters cooked, which they would like to take forward.
Mr Chrungoo said that Government has a clear picture of the settlement on Jammu and Kashmir in mind and it should be made transparent, what actually is cooking on the issue.
''We warn against any settlement of Jammu and Kashmir, which compromises with the sovereignty and integrity of India in the state, and seeks to concede to the imperatives of Muslim identity politics and separatism in the state," Mr Chrungoo said.
