Doda migrants demand relief at par with Kashmiri counterparts

The members of erstwhile Doda Migrants Committee, Jammu, have been on dharna at Jantar Mantar, since March 29, in support of their long pending genuine demands.

Committee president, Ghulam Moni-ud-Din Beg said the committee held continuous dharna at Mubarak Mandi Jammu for six years and four months, but the State Govewrnment did not give any credence to their problems.

He said Doda migrants assembled at Madhopur in Punjab and started their march up to New Delhi braving all odds in the absence of any food or money and sat on dharma at Jantar Mantar. They have also submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister in support of their demands.

The Doda migrants have been demanding that they should be treated at par with Kashmiri migrants and given the same status and their registration be done on spot verification grounds. They are demanding further that relief should be given to them from 1996 as per orders of the Supreme Court and the State High Court.

They also stressed that the verification files of Doda migrants which are complete in all respects should be granted relief at an earliest.
