Senior National Conference leader and Member of Legislative Council Dr Bashir Ahmad Veeri Tuesday along with hundreds of party activists took out a protest rally in Islamabad against BJP-PDP government.

National conference activists raised anti-government slogans and marched from Dak Banglow to Khanabal Chowk.

They were carrying placards reading “Lifelong pension for visually handicapped “, “Stop Killing of Youths”, “rehabilitate Pellet victims”, “Revoke PSA & release all arrested” and “No change in demography”, “No PRC’s for WPR’S”, Provide Govt job to next of Kin, killed, “Stop RSS Agenda”, “Life time compensation for physically handicapped”, “Provide Power& Ration as per schedule”.

Veeri, on the occasion threatened to launch valley wide agitation against anti-people policies of PDP-BJP government, if it failed to mitigate the problems faced by common masses and didn’t stop killing spree.

Earlier addressing the party activists at Dak Banglow, MLC Veeri said that Peoples Democratic Party befooled Kashmiris at every stage right from elections.

He demanded monthly remuneration/pension for victims blinded by pellets. “Government must bring out a special scheme for pellet victims and must start their sound monthly pension/remuneration besides it should also provide government employment to next of the kin killed & life time compensation to physically handicapped during the unrest,” he demanded.

Dr Veeri asked PDP-BJP government to stop killing innocent people and using excessive force. He also castigated government for jailing innocent youth under draconian law PSA.

“Mehbooba Mufti used to accuse us of killing people and jailing innocents but now she broke all the records and in fact has traveled extra mile by blinding hundreds of educated youth,” he alleged.

“Not a single Kashmiri especially youth is safe. Since PDP-BJP government took over the law and order situation has worsened,” Veeri said.

Veeri said that it has been routine practice of this government to deceive and befool the common masses on petty issues.

He said that people want the change that PDP promised during campaign. “PDP-BJP alliance must fulfill all the promises mentioned in agenda of alliance,” he said.

He said that instead of taking concrete measures for resolution of Kashmir issue, PDP is complicating by issuing domicile certificates to West Pakistan refugees which is nothing but a sinister design of RSS to change the demography of Jammu Kashmir.

He asked state government to release all those innocent youth booked under PSA during last six months.

Dr Veeri slammed state government for its failure in providing essential services to people & expressed concern over the shortage of eatables and essentials in the state and said, “Situation is grim in the state; CAPD stores in Kashmir are empty. No adequate steps are being taken by this callous government in this regard despite knowing the fact that Kashmir most of time losses surface connection with rest of the world due to heavy snowfall.”

He threatened to launch valley wide agitation against anti-people policies of government in-case they continued to implement anti-people & anti Kashmir agenda. “Today’s protest is to warn government. They must refrain from implementing RSS dictated, Nagpur agenda,” he added.
