Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Council Friday unanimously passed a resolution for creating a conducive atmosphere for return of displaced Kashmiri Pandits to the Valley, a day after the Assembly took initiative in this regard.
As the House assembled, the National Conference (NC) member Bashir Ahmed Veeri raised the issue about such a resolution being unanimously passed by the Assembly.
Pertinently, the Assembly passed the resolution for creating a “conducive atmosphere” for the return of the Pandits to the Valley yesterday, with the state government asserting it will go ahead with the proposal of setting up transit camps for the displaced community which is being strongly opposed by separatists and some mainstream groups.
Leader of the House and Education Minister Naeem Akhter also favoured the passage of resolution unanimously and said he strongly believed that Kashmir today needs displaced Pandits back “to restore the composite culture in Valley”
“This is an important issue. We want to send a message from this House to them as a message in this regard has already been sent from the Lower House,” he told the Council. PTI
