GST row: Few JK ministers in league with authorities in Nagpur, joint resistance leaders say


The joint resistance leadership on Wednesday said that the PDP government was implementing GST in Jammu Kashmir at the cost of business community.

The trio of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Farooq expressed deep concern over proposed implementation of GST in state and said that it is a well thought out plan to cripple our trade and economy.

Lashing out at the PDP government, the leadership said that they are hell-bent to harm business community and added that few state ministers are in league with authorities in Nagpur and are being lured to implement GST in state.

Meanwhile, the leaders also condemned the ransacking of properties during night raids in Shopian. They in joint statement called for peaceful protests after Friday prayers on June 16 and demanded immediate release of all political prisoners.

“State authorities have waged war on innocent civilians. Government of India is not serious to resolve Kashmir issue as they instead of following political means, are pursuing their repressive policy and fanatical ideology,” a joint statement issued by the leadership said.

Reacting sharply over raids conducted by NIA, the joint leadership said that Indian government is frustrated to the extent that they frame and raid residences of pro-freedom leaders and activists so that they surrender and stop voicing the sentiments of their nation, thereby covering and shielding their atrocities and barbarism against common and unarmed people.

The leaders warned the government of dire consequences and said if these repressive tactics are not stopped forthwith, they will resent and call a public protest against these repressive measures.
