Srinagar: Calling for urgent steps to “liberate Pakistan occupied Kashmir,” the Kashmiri Pandit group Panun Kashmir told Government of India’s interlocutor for Kashmir, Dineshwar Sharma, on Friday.
Panun Kashmir also recommended abrogating Article 370 and 35A and create a separate homeland for Kashmiri Pandits.
“Article 370 and Article 35A have become an unnecessary baggage of the past errors of the rulers of India. There is a national consensus to review these absurd laws that are in contravention of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Indian Constitution to the citizens of India,” the group said in a statement.
Led by party president Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, the four-member delegation that met Sharma in Jammu said that the government of India must take immediate and urgent steps to “liberate the Pakistan occupied parts of Jammu Kashmir state in consonance with the unanimous resolution passed by the Parliament in 1994”.
The delegates told Sharma to initiate serious dialogue for the establishment of a separate homeland in Kashmir valley as explicitly demanded in the Margdarshan Resolution of RSS in 1991.
The party stated that in response to their demands Sharma told them that no government has the mandate to discuss and negotiate on unity and integrity of the state.
