Srinagar Mar 21: Senior PDP Leader Er. Nazir Ahmed Yatoo has asked government to release J&K PDP President Mehbooba Mufti AND OMAR ABDULLAH immediately in view of COVID-19 medical emergency across the globe.
Yatoo said detaining a senior leader amid sombre and uncertain medical emergency is painful for her family and party workers.
‘ At a time when world is grappling with the challenge of this unprecedented pandemic, detaining a person in preventive custody makes no sense and carves out a barbaric identity for government.
Why can’t government open phone communication immediately to give some relief? ‘ Yatoo added further.
He also demanded release of all prisoners including senior political leaders of state.
Yatoo further added while people are advised to stay indoors government must keep in mind the welfare of economically downtrodden people who live hand to mouth and consequently suffer from these conditions.
