Withdrawal of security to political leaders, activists unjustified: CPI(M)

1 min read

Srinagar, (UNI): CPI(M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Friday said that the decision of the government to “downgrade and withdraw” security of political leaders, activists of different parties is “arbitrary” and has no “justification”.

In a statement, he said the decision could endanger the lives of these leaders and activists.

“Political process in the region is itself a difficult task. The activists cutting across the political line are doing their bit to strengthen the political process. Hindrance should not be put on them, rather they should be encouraged,” Tarigami said.

“However, unfortunately, security cover of activists, cutting across political spectrum, has been either downgraded or withdrawn. The security should be provided irrespective of political affiliations,” he added.

The CPI(M) leader urged the administration to review the decision.
