Jammu: The Jagti Tenement Committee (JTC) on Friday announced a `bandh` on January 8 to mark protest against the alleged poor facilities provided to Jagti township.

Jagti township was developed to rehabilitate Kashmiri Migrants under the Prime Minister`s Rehabilitation and Return Package for the Kashmiri Migrants.

"The JTC members have decided to observe Jagti Bandh on January 8 in support of their demands and the cooperation of all shopkeepers, transporters, men, women, and students has been sought", President JTC, S L Pandita told reporters here.

Pandita also asked Jagti residents to take part in a peaceful protest rally which shall start at 11 am from Jagti and will culminate at Kandoli Mandir in Nagrota.

The township is denied of power supply for 16 hours a day, which is quite "unfortunate", he said.

The delay in the enhancement of monthly relief to the migrants has added to the miseries of Jagti residents, he said.
