A delegation representing the displaced district of Kashmir under the leadership of Chand Ji Bhat, District President, along with Chetan Wanchoo, Vice-president, P K Bhat, Treasurer, and Chaman Lal Pandita, Office Secretary, met with the Deputy Commissioner Jammu Sachin Kumar Vaishya at Jammu.
During the meeting, the delegation submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner, drawing his attention to critical issues concerning the well-being and development of Kashmiri migrants residing in Jagti camp, TRT Nagrota, TRT Purkhu, and TRT Muthi.
One of the key requests made was for the implementation of a Smart Bus service connecting Jagti Township and TRT Nagrota to Jammu aimed at enhancing transportation facilities for the residents.
Prioritizing the safety of the camp residents, the delegation urged the Deputy Commissioner to establish a 24x7 Fire Brigade station in or around Jagti Township for a swift response in the unfortunate event of a fire.
Additionally, the delegation emphasized the need for the installation of an open-air gym in all Kashmiri Pandit camps, enhancing the recreational facilities in Jagti, Nagrota, Muthi, and Purkhu camps.
Responding to these concerns, the Deputy Commissioner has instructed his staff to allocate a sum of rupees Two lakh for open air gym for each camp in the next financial year. This financial support aims to address the pressing needs and enhance the overall living conditions of the residents.
Furthermore, the delegation successfully secured the agreement of the Deputy Commissioner to conduct a personal visit to all migrant camps. This commitment reflects the DC's dedication to understanding the on-ground realities and fostering a direct connection with the residents.
The BJP delegation expressed gratitude for the Deputy Commissioner's responsiveness and commitment to addressing the concerns raised during the meeting. This collaborative effort signifies a step forward in ensuring the well-being and development of Kashmiri migrants in the region.
