Opposition party National Conference on Saturday said they will not allow the Jammu and Kashmir government to go ahead with its plan to set-up separate colonies for Kashmiri Pandits. Instead they will work on the resettlement of Pandits in their native places, PTI reported.

“We are against separate clusters for Kashmiri Pandits. We welcome them (to Kashmir), but we will not let the government to create separate colonies for them,” NC general secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar was quoted saying.

Sagar said National Conference has always supported the return of Kashmiri Pandits to their native places in the Valley. “We have always said that we want them to return to the Valley and settle at their native places along with their Muslim brothers,” he said.

The NC workers, led by Sagar and provincial president Kashmir Nasir Aslam Wani, marched from Nawa-i-Subh to Regal Chowk near Lal Chowk today to register their protest against governments new recruitment policy .
