Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi To Meet Families Of Kashmiri Pandits Killed In Targeted Attacks

Earlier this month, MS Chaturvedi had also written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking the security of the Kashmiri Pandits in the valley.

Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi on Thursday will visit Jammu and Kashmir to meet the families of Kashmiri Pandits who were recently killed by terrorists.

Ms. Chaturvedi, who will be taking a message of solidarity from the leadership of her party, is likely to meet two to three families including that of government employee Rahul Bhat.

Earlier this month, Ms Chaturvedi had also written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking the security of the Kashmiri Pandits in the valley.

Shiv Sena chief and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had criticized the central government saying that it has failed to ensure the security of Kashmiri Pandits in the Kashmir Valley.

Maharashtra Environment Minister Aaditya Thackeray had also expressed concern on th3 matter. He said¬† “The situation in Kashmir is deeply concerning. Unfortunately, the situation is repeating these times. We expect the Government of India to take strong measures to ensure their protection.”

A total of 13 civilians have been killed by terrorists in the last three months instilling fear among the locals, especially Kashmiri Pandits, who want to flee from the valley.

Last week, the government, amid a concerning rise in targeted killings in Kashmir Valley,  ordered the transfer of 177 Kashmiri Pandit teachers posted in Srinagar to safer locations. The order by the government came after there were demands by Kashmiri Pandits for relocation over safety concerns.
