The dharna launched by All Kashmiri Migrant Relief Holders Association demanding enhancement of cash assistance from Rs 41.66 to Rs 120 per soul per day entered 20th day today.
Addressing the demonstrators the Association leaders urged the Apex Committee members to raise the issue in their meeting before Chief Minister scheduled on April 18. President All India Kashmiri Samaj (AIKS), Moti Kaul who also visited the dharna site today assured full support to the protestors in their struggle and urged the Government to concede the demand without any further delay.
Justifying the demand he said, the migrants are facing many hardships and economic crisis as the cash doles given by the Government are not sufficient to meet the both ends in view of the sky rocketing prices of essential commodities.
He assured the gathering that he will take up the issue with Union Government and also raise the same in Apex meeting. Roshan Lal Raina urged the Government to settle the issue without further delay and take a decision in the Apex level meeting in this regard. O N Kaw, Ravinder Pandita and Dilip Pandita also addressed the protestors.
