Peoples Democratic Party Tuesday staged a massive protest march in Srinagar against what they say ‘bulldozer policy’ initiated by LG administration.
The protesters including PDP leaders and activists marched from PDP office near Municipal Park towards traffic headquarters and raised slogans against BJP and LG administration.
They were carrying placards in their hands that read different slogans like ‘Kashmir for Kashmiris’, ‘Stop ruling Jammu and Kashmir like a colony’, ‘Landless, jobless, homeless,’ ‘Stop bulldozing our homes.’
While talking to reporters one of the PDP leaders, Mohit Bhan said that the BJP government has been dispossessing the people of Jammu and Kashmir from their land and homes. He said demolition exercise was being carried out through the arbitrary use of bulldozers to invent homelessness in Jammu and Kashmir.
He said in New Delhi colonies under illegal occupation are being regularized while in Jammu and Kashmir, the land from natives is being snatched.
The protesters as per the news agency Kashmir News Trust alleged BJP government is using police to suppress them. They said the bulldozer policy should be halted without any delay.
The protesters amid sloganeering said that the honor and dignity of people of Kashmir are being trampled and disturbance is created to add woes to the hardships of people.
One of the protesters said that for BJP, J&K does not mean much but has been often used to further their alleged agenda of communal hatred.
“People are being humiliated. They have no say, no access to power corridors. Law is not being followed. Stick approach is pursued to crush common people,” said the protesters. [KNT]
