JAMMU, March 26

The Erstwhile Doda Migrant Committee, Jammu, staged a protest on Tuesday outside the office of Relief Commissioner at Canal Road here.

The protest was led by committee president Rajesh Sharma, wherein the committee urged relief commissioner and state government to implement the Supreme Court and state High Court order to grant relief and ration to Doda migrants on the pattern of Kashmiri migrants.

The committee added that the migrants of the district were living in miserable conditions and suffered a lot but the authorities were not serious about the issue. “We have been approaching the relief organisations at regular intervals but in vain,” a statement said.
