Srinagar, August 05 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party on Friday flayed the Narendra Modi-led Indian government for “robbing” the people of Jammu and Kashmir of their special status on this day three years ago and demanded rollback of the move.
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, along with her supporters, tried to take out a march from her party headquarters but were stopped by police.
Mehbooba and her party supporters raised slogans demanding withdrawal of the move – “kale din ka kaala kanoon wapis lo” (withdraw black law imposed on the black day).
In August 2019, the Modi’s BJP regime abrogated the special status of IIOJK under Article 370 and put the territory under military siege.
The PDP chief took to Twitter and said as the BJP’s malicious designs for Jammu and Kashmir have unravelled, the pattern of suppression and fear is now knocking at the door in India too. Weaponising their pet agencies & using terror laws to stifle dissent has become the norm, she added.
National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah, in a tweet, said, “We will continue our peaceful struggle using all legal and constitutional means to challenge what was done to JK on 5th Aug 2019. The road ahead may be a long one, full of twists and turns but his party will not abandon it.”
His party’s official Twitter handle put out posters saying “we reject disenfranchisement and disempowerment of people of Jammu and Kashmir” and urged the Indian Supreme Court to constitute a bench to begin hearing in the matter.
Communist of Party India Marxist (CPI-M) leader, M Y Tarigami, in a tweet said on this day in 2019, the Indian government upended the constitution and robbed IIOJK of what it hard achieved after a hard-fought battle by locking away thousands overnight. We reiterate our cast iron resolve to unitedly work for restoration of what was snatched from us, he said.
