Dr. Vijay Sazawal, a veteran policy analyst and Kashmir expert in an exclusive conversation with Rakesh Roshan Bhat on TRN recommended a practicable way forward for the one of the most critical issues of the KPs at present, the relocation of PM package employees. “The legal recourse is available to all the citizens of India. Leaders who are telling them to continue the demonstrations and bad mouth the administration and BJP leadership are just misguiding them. They need legal support. If some community legal luminaries and expert (retired) bureaucrats come together, they will be able to identify indirect or direct precedence that will help contest the case well and in favor of employees”, he said.
Rakesh Roshan Bhat observed that the solution can be broken down into steps. The immediate step and thereby the demand should be to ensure the foolproof security of employees. They should be moved to district headquarters and given fool proof security. Pertinently, TRN had released a video few weeks ago which showed a very vulnerable office location of PM package employees in Anantnag. That is what should be addressed first and immediately.
Dr. Sazawal also commented on a range of issues. He appreciated the role of KPs who stayed back in valley and hailed them as real protectors of heritage of KPs. He emphasized that the community should come forward to redress their hardships. He appealed to the community that they should not give up so easily. They should be positive about their return to their land of ancestors. One of the important things for eventual resettlement is to start inter community dialogue. He also talked about his efforts to get KP community leadership on a single platform.
