The meeting was headed by Home Minister Amit Shah and Kashmiri pandits requested the Home Minister to address the issues of displaced Pandits on a priority basis. The Pandits urged Amit Shah to take concrete steps for honourable and dignified return of the community to the Kashmir Valley.
While speaking to the media, Utpal Kaul, who was part of the delegation, said, “Amit Shah assures that special townships will be created in all 10 districts of Kashmir Valley for the rehabilitation of the Kashmiri Pandits.” “Amit Shah also says that all temples which have been desecrated and vandalised by the terrorists will be renovated again,” said Kaul.
