The KPs discussed security concerns with the conglomerate and even assessed them to leave Kashmir, he said, adding that PAGD members however told the delegation that Kashmir is also theirs and that leaving the place of origin is not a solution.
“There are genuine demands from Kashmiri pundits as they don’t feel safe even in the offices now,” he said.
