A Kashmiri Pandits' body has sought for the creation of a centrally administered Union Territory in Kashmir for sustainable and viable rehabilitation of Kashmiri Hindus in the Valley.

"The central government should recognise the need for creating a centrally administered Union Territory on the north and east of Jhelum river as the only sustainable and viable means of resettling the internally displaced Kashmiri Hindus in Kashmir and reversing their genocide," Panun Kashmir (PK) chairman Ajay Chrungoo said here on Tuesday.

Flanked by the PK convener Agnishakher, Chrungoo hoped that the new government led by BJP's Narendra Modi in New Delhi will address the issue of return of Kashmir Hindus as an issue of reversal of genocide and not as an issue of economic package.

"It hopes that the present government in the Centre will make a radical departure from its predecessors on the issue," he said.

Panun Kashmir reiterates that no other solution for the return of Kashmiri Hindus is acceptable to the Kashmiri Hindus, Chrungoo said.
