Jammu: Demanding enhancement of monthly relief, Kashmiri Migrant Relief Holders on Tuesday held a protest demonstration against the Centre and Jammu and Kashmir government for their silence on the issue.

Over 150 migrant relief holders assembled at the Relief Commissioner's office and held protest demonstration demanding enhancement of relief.

"We are on strike for past several months in support of our demand for enhancement of monthly relief but central government has turned a blind eye with a proposal of enhancement of relief submitted to it by the state government," Leader of Relief holders, Rakesh Bhat told reporters here.

"If our demands are not met, we will be forced to take on streets", he said.

The central government should immediately approve the proposal of increase of relief, he added.
