KPs clash with police during protest march over relief hike

Jammu, Dec 26 (PTI) Demanding enhancement of the monthly relief, Kashmiri Migrant Relief Holders today lashed at the Centre and Jammu and Kashmir government for silence on the issue and clashed with police during protest demonstration here. Over 200 migrant relief holders held protest demonstration in support of their demand for enhancement of monthly relief for displaced Kashmiri Pandits. Raising anti-government slogans, they held demonstrations at Relief Commissioner's office and tried to take out a protest rally in the city. However, police did not allowed them to take out the protest march resulting in brief clashes with them. "We are on strike for past several months in support of our demand for enhancement of monthly relief but central government has turned a blind eye with a proposal of enhancement of relief submitted to it by the state government," Leader of Relief holders, Rakesh Bhat told reporters here. The central government should immediately approve the proposal of increase of relief from Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 per family, he said. PTI AB DBR
