Jammu, Feb 24: The government is working on the return of migrant Kashmiri Pandits to the Valley soon with honour and dignity in a secured environment, said a senior BJP leader.

BJP general secretary (Organisation) Ashok Koul also asked the displaced community to get ready for the return for which they have been waiting for the last three decades.

"It should be clear to all that the migrant Pandits have to return to the Valley. The government is going to take a call on it very soon," said Koul.

He was speaking at an annual award distribution function organized by Harmukh Ganga (Gangbal) Trust (HGGT) in association with All Parties Migrants Co-ordination Committee (APMCC) here on Sunday evening.

"The situation in the Valley has improved, especially after the abrogation of Article 370 last year. The Kashmiri Pandits have to go back with honour and dignity," said Koul, himself a Kashmiri Pandit.

Lauding the efforts of APMCC for the reopening and upkeep of temples in the Valley, the BJP leader told the audience that the government would support reconstruction and renovation of important temples and shrines in the Valley.
