Amid chaos and tensions all over the valley, an all-party meeting has been called by the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. The meeting is underway at the residence of National Conference chairman Farooq Abdullah.
The meeting comes amid rising tension following the build-up of 35,000 troops in the valley from last many days. The call also comes amid concerns about the state’s special status.
Mehbooba Mufti also claimed police did not allow a meeting to be held at a local hotel. “The political parties here had decided to hold a meeting, at a hotel today. But the police has issued an advisory to all hotels not to let political parties hold any meeting in hotels. So we’re holding a meeting at 6 pm today,” she told ANI.
“Evacuate yatris, tourists, labourers, students & cricketers. Willingly create a sense of panic & distress but don’t bother giving Kashmiris a sense of relief or security. Kahan gayi insaniyat, kashmiriyat aur jamhooriyat?” she wrote on her twitter handle earlier.
