Protest in support of Pak Hindu migrants

Jodhpur: Seemant Lok Sangthan, the voluntary organisation working for the rehabilitation of 171 Hindus who had arrived here from Pakistan, on Saturday said it will conduct a rally and meet Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to protest lack of accommodation for the migrants.
    
The rally will be held on Sunday from Rajiv Gandhi Chowk to the Circuit House to meet the chief minister, who is on a two-day visit to the town, to protest lack of accommodation despite CM's orders to district administration, H S Sodha, SLS president, said.
    
The families had arrived in Jodhpur last Sunday.
    
They were temporarily accommodated in a temple, expecting the administration to follow the directions of Gehlot to give them a suitable location for accommodation.
    
"But till today, we have not yet been provided with any such location," Sodha said.
    
Two days ago, they were also asked to vacate the temple and now they have been accommodated by the SLS under an open tent in an open field, he said.
    
"To top it all, the same Gehlot, who had assured all assistance, did not bother to see that how these people are managing and take feedback from the authorities about his directions," he said.
    
Meanwhile, BJP leaders are coming to Jodhpur on Sunday to meet the migrant families.
    
"The party has constituted a committee to look into the matter and prepare a report on it, which will be submitted to both the state and central unit," Onkar Singh Lakhawat said.
    
The committee comprises Lakhawat, MP from Bikaner Arjun Meghwal and Pabba Ram Bishnoi besides local MLAs.
