Decision to withdraw security cover of PDP leaders politically motivated:  Chief Spokesman

Party demands immediate roll back of Govt. decision, urges. Governor to act in accordance with situation


Srinagar, Jan 8:  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday said the  security cover  of its leaders is being withdrawn in a most unprecedented  manner and that such government action could affect the political landscape of the already strife torn state.

In a statement issued here to Fast Kashmir, PDP Chief spokesman Rafi Ahmad Mir said that the governor administration without taking into account the ground realities is withdrawing the security cover  and accommodation of the PDP leaders and such a measure besides being unnatural could prove life threatening as well.

He added that  the PDP President Mehbooba Mufti had already taken up the matter with the governor administration and she was assured that  the security to the PDP leaders shall be provided according to categorisation. However, according to Mir, it is unfortunate that the security cover of even top most functionaries has been withdrawn including former cabinet minister Abdul Haq Khan which is very worrisome and merits immediate attention.

“This seems politically motivated and will affect the political landscape of the state.  We demand the immediate rollback of these decisions and urge upon the  Governor administration to act in accordance to the situation which is turning worrisome with each passing day,” Mir said.
