Jammu: Panun Kashmir on Saturday demanded resignation of Centre's interlocutor Dileep Padgaonkar after his name surfaced in the list of those who reportedly visited the US on invitation of US-based Kashmiri lobbyist Ghulam Nabi Fai.

The organisation for displaced Kashmiri Pandits also demanded a thorough probe to unravel the names of Indians associated with the ISI operative and lobbyist.

"We ask Padgaonkar to resign from the post in view of his exposure with Dr Fai. He cannot continue on a public post that too is connected with affairs of Jammu and Kashmir," Panun Kashmir President, Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo told reporters here on Saturday.

Flanked by president of ASKPC, AN Vaishnavi, NCMCC chairman DN Kissu, he said "his continuance on the post will create mistrust as he is dealing with very important subject on Kashmir".

Lashing out at the vicious anti-India campaign launched by Fai in the US on the behest of Pakistan and ISI, Chrungoo said "there is full exposure of the people of various walks of life who were connected with Fai and can pose threat to the country".

"We demand a thorough probe into the his entire network in Jammu and Kashmir and country," he said adding that this is urgently needed.

Pandits in Kashmir have been the worst victims of the campaign launched for the past two decades by his Council baked by ISI, he said.

It has caused damage to Indian interests globally and has negatively influenced some Congressmen and other opinions makers, he said.
