Sat Sharma, while speaking on the occasion, said that with the commencement of the much awaited financial assistance among the families of the Displaced Persons of 1947, 1965 and 1971 under ‘Prime Minister’s package, a wave of joy is visible among these people who were agitating continuously since their uprooting from homes but the successive governments did not care. With the Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister of the country, the BJP has succeeded in getting financial assistance for the displaced persons of 1947, 65 and 71, which reflects the commitment of the Modi government at the Centre towards the mitigation of the problems of these people. He said although no money can bring back one’s near and dear one nor can it buy the happiness of living with a family but still a human approach is to be adopted and provide some financial assistance so that those affected can construct their house or start some source of earning livelihood.
Capt. Yudhvir Singh, while expressing gratitude to PM Narendra Modi and his party BJP for taking keen interest in meeting the long pending demand of the DPs, stressed upon the state government to simplify the process and ensure transparency in the whole exercise.
