National Conference president, Farooq Abdullah led opposition parties will stage an anti-government ‘peaceful’ protest on October 10 in Jammu.
“The current situation in Jammu and Kashmir was discussed in the meeting of opposition parties and it has been decided that a ‘peaceful’ protest will be held against the government on October 10,” Abdullah told reporters after convening the all parties meeting here.
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, Congress J&K president Vikar Rasool Wani, Congress leader Raman Bhalla, CPI (M) leader MY Tarigami and other opposition parties leaders attended the meeting.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Abdullah said, “the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir was discussed threadbare in the meeting.”
“The present situation in Jammu and Kashmir is worrisome,” said Abdullah, alleging that the Constitution has been suspended in Jammu and Kashmir and democratic rights are under attack.
“Lieutenant Governor, Home Minister, PM Modi repeatedly say that everything is normal in Jammu and Kashmir, then why elections are not being conducted. Why elections are not being conducted even after delimitation and preparation of fresh voter list,” said Abdullah.
J&K Congress president Vikar Rasool Wani said that BJP promised to make Jammu and Kashmir number one in the country, but after four years, Jammu and Kashmir has topped in corruption and unemployment.
“The recent terrorist attacks have also exposed the party’s claim of peace,” said Wani.
