The Hurriyat Conference (G) today threatened mass agitation against any attempt to settle non-locals in Jammu Kashmir under National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM).

The amalgam, at a meeting of its executive council held here today with its senior leader Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi in chair, said , "The PDP-BJP government seems hell bent to change the demography of Jammu Kashmir. They want to do away with the Muslim identity of state by changing its demography. The construction of shelters for non-locals under NULM is the part of this plan. New Delhi is using one after another tactics to suppress the Kashmir movement but people of Kashmir will continue their struggle come what may." 

"The executive council members cautioned that the Hurriyat would launch a mass agitation if the Government of India and its state government executed their plan to settle non-locals in Jammu and Kashmir in the name of providing shelters to homeless people," the Hurriyat spokesman said, adding that the meeting was attended by either the heads or the representatives of the amalgam constituents. 

"The meeting also expressed serious concern over the summoning of 80 students of the HMT Parimpora area by the police station, Parimpora. Majority of the summoned students are under 18 years. They have been asked to attend the police station daily," the spokesman said.
