@DrJitendraSingh
West Pakistan Refugees Action Committee from Jammu and Kashmir today met Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Dr Jitendra Singh in New Delhi and submitted a memorandum.The Committee thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for granting them citizenship rights after a long wait of over seven decades. 

The memorandum submitted to Dr Singh by the President of West Pakistan Refugees Action Committee, Labbha Ram Gandhi stated that with the abrogation of Article 370 and 35-A and conversion of Jammu and Kashmir from State to Union Territory of India, all the rights have automatically been bestowed upon the helpless West Pakistani refugees. It said, a wave of happiness has run across all these refugees for which the credit goes to the Modi-led NDA government at the Centre.
 
During a half-an-hour meeting with them, Dr. itendra Singh said, it was not only violation of constitutional rights but also violation of human rights of these refugees, who were denied citizenship rights for 70 years. He said, after Prime Minister Modi’s decision, now they will have the same rights as any other citizen of India and their children will get a level playing field in jobs and various other new opportunities.
