For the first time since the formation of PDP-BJP government in Jammu and Kashmir, a separatist faction has called for a complete shutdown against the government move to establish separate “composite townships for Kashmiri Pandits” in valley.
Hurriyat patriarch and chairman of his faction Syed Ali Geelani Wednesday called for a complete shutdown on Saturday against the proposed move.
Geelani alleged that Mufti Mohammad Sayeed led PDP of surrendering before RSS and called for complete shutdown on Saturday against establishing separate ‘townships’ for migrant pandits in the valley.
“PDP has made a complete surrender before RSS and BJP by accepting the establishment of separate townships for pandits,” Geelani said in a statement issued from New Delhi.
He also appealed people to hold protest rallies after Friday prayers.
“Separate Township will be like a state within state and we will never ever allow it.”
Geelani appealed, “people should rise against ‘an anti-Kashmir and anti-majority move’ and hold strong protests on Friday and observe complete shutdown on Saturday”.
