SOS International, an organisation of PoK refugees, today termed the Centre's new eight-point package as Kashmir-centric.
"Eight-point agenda rolled out by the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) to deal with raging issues and turmoil in Kashmir is on expected lines and Kashmir-centric," the Chairman of the organisation, Rajiv Chuni told reporters here.
He welcomed the humane approach of the Central government towards Kashmir but at the same time criticised its "continuous apathetic attitude" towards PoK refugees in particular and the people of Jammu and Ladakh in general.
"In the past also we saw constitution of PM's working groups on Kashmir, round table conference and now all-party parliamentary delegation's visit to the state. At every step, Jammu and Ladakh were ignored and the focus was laid on Kashmir only," he said.
"Our first and foremost demand is resolution of PoK issue according to aspirations of the refugees," he said.
