The former JKPCC president Ghulam Mohammad Mir who was leading the protest told media that this silent protest is being held by the Congress workers here in solidarity with Rahul Gandhi.
He said Rahul Gandhi who became the voice of poor, downtrodden and minorities and raised issues of corruption besides fought to restore the democracy in the country was being targeted by the present BJP government.
“There is no name of democracy in the country,” Mir said and added “the government is not ready to accept the constitution of the country”.
