JAMMU: VHP chief Praveen Togadia today urged the Centre’s special representative on Jammu and Kashmir, Dineshwar Sharma to give priority to resettlement of Kashmiri Pandits within a time frame.
He also called for abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35A of the Indian Constitution and opposed the dialogue process with separatists.
“Unless Kashmiri Pandits are not settled in their homeland, no dialogue is worth its meaning. The fact that they cannot come back to their homes is not only painful, but insulting as well,” he told reporters here.
“Therefore, I ask Sharma to give priority to the issue and ensure their settlement within a time frame,” he said.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) chief, who arrived here yesterday, is on a three-day tour of Jammu region.
He is chairing a Hindu Helpline convention in which over 100 delegates from across the country are taking part.
Togadia also spoke against having a dialogue with separatists in the Valley.
“Those demanding ‘Azadi’ or self-rule should go to Pakistan as those talking against the constitution are traitors. They have no right to live in this country.
“As far as Pakistani agents are concerned, a dialogue with them will not help as they would not understand. They only understand the language of AK 47,” he said.
“We should strive to make Jammu and Kashmir terrorism free and those who indulge in stone pelting against soldiers should be carpet bombed,” he said.
