Jammu and Kashmir News
The long pending demand of West Pak Refugees to allow them to participate in recruitment rallies of the Central forces has been approved by the Centre. The demand was unapproved so far because they didn’t have domicile certificates and permanent resident certificates but now the Centre has now agreed to consider Sarpanch’s certificate as domicile proof.
Before militancy erupted in Jammu and Kashmir, WPR were issued domicile certificates but for the last two decades they haven’t been issued this certificate. Due to this, the WPR youth were not even allowed to participate in any recruitment rally. They weren’t entitled to PRCs and hence were denied of jobs in state government departments. This had been their long pending demand that they should be allowed to take part in recruitment rallies of the central security forces.
