Omar Abdullah demands release of all Kashmiri political detainees

Srinagar, March 17 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Vice President of Jammu and Kashmir National Conference, Omar Abdullah has demanded the release of all political prisoners, including former legislator, Engineer Rashid.

Omar Abdullah, talking to reporters at Aarigam Khansaheb in Budgam, said all Kashmiris languishing in different jails should be released. The Public Safety Act (PSA) should go once and for all, he added.

He admitted that a delegation from Jammu and Kashmir is meeting the Election Commission of India to know the reason for the delay in conducting elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

When asked why they are always meeting the opposition leaders and not the government, Omar Abdullah said there is no fun in meeting the government as it doesn’t budge and doesn’t listen to them. “We have stopped meeting the government as it is a futile exercise,” he said.

“Government only knows how to harass people. When we tried to meet the government, it didn’t oblige,” he added.
