Jagmohan Singh Raina, president of All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee, said in a statement: It has been seen during the last several years that the New Delhi governments have been announcing the package for Kashmiri Pandits and nothing has been done for the Muslims and the Sikhs. . He said that Sikhs are surrounded by many difficulties and they are facing difficulties in terms of employment, political representation, business, agriculture and horticulture. During the years, the Parliamentary Committee of the proposed package announced for Kashmiri Pandits or a judge of the Supreme Court should be investigated.
Raina said that the officials who are giving these packages from time to time will be exposed by intensive investigations. He alleged that under the Prime Minister's package to give jobs to the Kashmiri Pandits who did not come from the Valley, the SRO (Sadar Aiyyatabad), declared by the state government in October 2017, is very discriminating with 425 Sikh community. He claimed that the SRO was a violation of the guaranteed rights under Article 14 and 16 of the arbitrary, illegal and Indian Constitution.
