Sitaram Yechury shoots letter to PM Modi

Dear Pradhan Mantri ji,

It is now six months since the severe restrictions had been clamped in
Jammu & Kashmir following the abrupt abrogation of Article 370 & 35A
of the Indian Constitution through a resolution adopted by the

Thousands have been detained from the night of the 4th-5th of August
2019. Many of them are lodged in jails in J&K and outside, detained in
their residences under virtual house arrest or in other different
locations. These include such people who have served as Union Cabinet
ministers in the past, people like Shri Farooq Abdullah, Ms. Mehbooba
Mufti & Shri Omar Abdullah (all three former Chief Ministers), Shri
Mohd. Yusuf Tarigami, a four time elected MLA to the now defunct
assembly of the state of Jammu & Kashmir, and many others.

I am writing to you to demand that the detained persons be released
and granted their liberty and freedoms as guaranteed by the Indian
Constitution. The Communications clampdown must be lifted and the
democratic processes  restored immediately. These have severely
impacted the economy of the region imposing unprecedented misery on
the people.

The assurances made to the people at the time of the accession of the
state to the Indian Union must be honoured.

I hope you will consider the matter with all the seriousness that it warrants.

Yours sincere


                                                                                    (Sitaram Yechury)

Shri Narendra Modi
Prime Minister
