Panun Kashmir rejects twin city concept

published on June 3, 2013

Reiterating the undisputed importance of a separate Homeland for 7 lac exiled Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir valley with union territory status, Panun Kashmir convener Dr Agnishekhar described the recently floated concept of Twin-city for displaced KPs reportedly by Interlocutors as yet another calculated move that would ultimately fetch package worth thousands of crores to build a new city ‘nov srinagar’ in the name of rehabilitation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits.

Addressing a press conference in Jammu,Dr Agnishekhar while rejecting this misleading twin-city concept that seems to be diplomatically designed by its authors at the behest of establishment to undermine and dilute the widely accepted separate homeland demand of Panun Kashmir .He cautioned the community members across the country in general and Jammu in particular against the machinations of a certain segment of KP public intellectuals who seem to have been assigned the job of creating massive public opinion in it’s favour.

Dr Agnishekhar said it’s unfortunate that this self styled group of individuals which even includes certain office bearers and associates of All India Kashmiri Samaj seems to be in touch with the senior separatist leaders of Kashmir valley for seeking their blessings for the return of pandits.

He rediculed the claim by the promoters of this concept that accepting the Twin-city proposal was not inconsistent with PK demand of homeland. Terming this move as a misleading propaganda he said the Twin-city concept is fundamentally contradictory to the ‘marg-darshan resolution’ of Panun Kashmir.If pandits are to be settled at all in this so-called secular and composite framework of the Twin -city ,then why couldn’t they go of their own to their original homes and hearths instead.

Dr Agnishekhar pointed out that this proposed dispensation doesn’t ensure non-refoulement,security,future,political space and above all, institutional and constitutional guarantees to the displaced KPs besides ,it is silent on their core issue of exodus and genocide.Kashmiri Pandits can not risk any such concept that could possibly be the proposed area where hundreds of Pakistan returned terrorists,Jammu based political migrants ,muslim migrants and thousands of displaced of Dal lake could be settled alongside.

PK convener Dr Agnishekhar cautioned the displaced KPs to be vigilant against being trapped into this luring illusion in waiting.
