The committee's chief, Vinod Pandit, called on chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and discussed the issues of migrant employees posted in Kashmir, including salary and show cause notices faced by them, a press release said.

Over 1,700 displaced Kashmiri pandit youth have been employed in the valley under the special employment package and scores of employees who stay put in Jammu due to the fear of increasing militancy and 2016 Kashmir unrest are awaiting salaries, it said.

The chief minister assured Pandit that their grievances would be resolved soon. She also assured action on non-implementation of some government orders regarding the salaries and show cause notices by some officials, the release said.
