Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday called for complete shutdown on December 8 against the proposed visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Geelani also appealed people to register evening protests after Magrib prayers against election process and Modi’s visit.
Modi is scheduled to address an election rally at Sher-e-Kashmir cricket stadium Srinagar.
“We should convey through our resentment that the elections under the shade of gun can’t deter us from carrying the pro-freedom cause to its logical conclusion,” Geelani said in a statement.
He added, “until we don’t achieve freedom from India, we will boycott elections because India portrays these election as our consent. This wrong image has proved detrimental for our freedom movement.”
