PM package employees demand evacuation to safer places
Kashmiri Pandit employees appointed under Prime Minister Special Employment Package on Saturday urged Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to evacuate them to safer places.
"It is to apprise regretfully that we PM package employees under threat compulsion have finally decided that Kashmir is not safe for we people", reads the fresh letter written by fear-stricken employees to Lieutenant Governor.
"It is very unfortunate that being Indian, being Hindu we are being targeted again and again, day in day out we are being assassinated selectively", employees said.
The letter further mentioned "the package was given to as confidence-building initiative for we people but forget about the confidence we are not able to live here.
