Congress stages protest
Srinagar, May 8: Congress Party Monday held a peaceful sit-in at Srinagar based party headquarters.
The protest was led by Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president Ghulam Ahmad Mir.
Reports said that scores of Congress supporters carrying placards held a peaceful sit-in against the incumbent government.
Speaking to reporters, Mir said the Mehbooba Mufti government has failed on all fronts.
“I want to ask the chief minister that what for is she running the government. There is no dialogue (with Hurriyat Conference), there is no headway on AFSPA, no talk on return of power projects, schools and colleges are closed, development has been halted and tourism stopped. So, what for is this government here now? Now, only Oxygen remains,” Mir said.
Referring to Mufti’s statement that only Narendra Modi can resolve the Kashmir issue as he had the support of the entire nation, Mir said the prime minister has not uttered a word about the Centre’s Kashmir policy in three years.
“We have a democratic right to know on what basis did Mehbooba say that. People also want to know that,” he said. (CNS)
