Last Updated: Saturday, July 23, 2011 - 18:23

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.
