Jammu, March 05, (Scoop News)- All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC) has come down heavily on the attitude of some leaders for aligning with the anti-Hindu parties to sabotage the much awaited Temple and Shrines Bill that was again referred to Joint Select Committee making a mockery of the sentiments of lakhs of Kashmiri Pandits and other Hindus who had pinned great hopes on them.
In a strong worded statement issued here today the leaders of the apex body of Kashmiri Migrants said that it was unfortunate that even BJP legislators opposed the bill vociferously adding it was clear that certain people who have influence, money and power have once again sidelined Kashmiri Pandits reminding them that only note and vote banks matter for politicians.
Addressing an emergency meeting of APMCC activists as well as other supporting parties Vinod Pandit Chairman said that by not passing the bill the politicians have clearly indicated that they work for money and power and not for the welfare of the common masses adding when these common masses are Kashmiri Pandits they are muzzled more.
Pandit said that APMCC would soon issue a white paper on the temple encroachments and the nexus between politicians and looters to expose everyone whoever has sabotaged the passage of the Bill adding these politicians were dividing the people on regional lines.
He reminded the government of APMCC’s Kafan Yatra adding the whole lot of anti-Hindu leaders would be exposed throughout the nation.
King Bharati, National Spokesperson said that their party will continue its struggle for the passage of the bill adding APMCC would soon formulate a new and more forceful strategy to deal with the humiliation that Kashmiri Pandits were subjected by the politicians.
Bharati said that a battle lines have been drawn and now there was no doubt about the difference between friends and foes adding it was ironical that while Jammu based leaders have seen the progress of Mata Vasihnodevi Shrine which too was managed by Baridars but for Kashmiri Temples they want some temples to be excluded adding what will remain there if temples managed by certain trusts are excluded as management committees have alos refused to hand-over the temples if others were left out.
He however warned that APMCC would not allow pick and chose for temple Bill under any circumstances.
Reminding the government of its long agitation including two fast unto deaths and government assurances Advocate Arun Kandroo, Gen Secy APMCC said that politicians forget what a common man can do when driven to wall and added now the agitation will be fought more forcefully.
Pritam Sharma of Kranti Dal, Vikas Diwan of Rashtravadi Siv Sena and Karnail Chand of Dharamarth Sudhar Sangarsh Samiti castigated Jammu based leaders for toeing the line of corrupt and anti-hindu people adding they would not be spared in the coming elections as this bill would have become the basis for a J&K Hindu Shrine and Temples Bill which is the long pending demand of APHCC.
