Restrictions on resistance leadership denounced

Srinagar, March 25 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has reiterated his call for complete boycott of the forthcoming so-called Indian Parliamentary by-elections in the territory.

Polling for the farcical Indian Parliamentary elections will be held in Srinagar and Islamabad constituencies on 9th and 12th April 2017.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar said that although pro-India parties had always sought votes in the name of development and provision of basic facilities to the masses but New Delhi exploited this voting in its favour at the international forums. He appealed to the people to demonstrate the same resolve they exhibited during the 2016 mass uprising. The APHC Chairman urged the people of Central Kashmir and South Kashmir to observe civil curfew on 9th and 12th April on the occasion of polling in their respective constituencies and hold peaceful demonstrations against the farcical elections. Syed Ali Gilani said that entire resistance leadership had been caged ahead of the election drama and in such circumstances ulema, imams and youth had a vital role to inform the people about the negative effects on the ongoing freedom movement of casting votes. »
