Hurriyat Conference (m) on Thursday condemned the government decision of confining its chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to his house once again stating that caging Mirwaiz time and again reflects the “frustration on part of the authorities and acceptance of defeat by the ruling government” in J&K.
A spokesman of Hurriyat (m) in a statement condemned the arrest of JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik terming it as the ultimate form of state repression and political vendetta.
The spokesman said that these moves are aimed at building pressure on the pro-freedom leaders, choking space for them and keeping them away from their people
The spokesman also termed the shifting of Batamaloo bus stand to Parimpora and creating problems for transporters and hundreds of shopkeepers a decision in haste as the move will hit the livelihood of transporters and shopkeeper. He said government’s efforts should have been provide relief to the people rather than creating problems for them.
The spokesman said it is an irony that the government since day once started implementing its anti-people agenda and plunged people of Kashmir into difficulties instead of solving their issues. The spokesman extended full support to the call given by the transporters stating that their issues should be resolved without any further delay.
