Jammu: In view of steep rise in prices of
essential commodities, Kashmiri Muslim migrants on Wednesday demanded
a hundred per cent enhancement of their monthly relief.
"We demand an enhancement of monthly relief from Rs 5000
to Rs 10,000 per family for our children`s education and to
live a modest life", Kashmiri Muslim Migrants Committee (KMMC)
president Sheikh Fida Hussain told reporters here.
The J&K government is providing each migrant family Rs
5000 per month which is not sufficient to make both ends meet
in view of the price spiral, he said.
On government jobs, "they should also be given their
share," Hussain said.
The government should also grant accommodation to the
Muslims migrants like the ones given to Kashmiri Pandits, he
