Jammu and Kashmir Liberation (JKLF) chairman Yasin Malik on Friday said that as election process has lost attraction in Kashmir, new faces are being projected through social media platforms "to get back the charm of elections." 

"New faces with alluring slogans are being projected to get dead election process glamorized again. Last five years have brought appalling miseries to Kashmiris," said Malik while addressing a gathering at Masjid Bilal at The Bund here.

Malik asked people to remain steadfast and vigilant as "new conspiracies are being hatched to hurt Kashmiri resistance movement."

"A narrative is being created that resolution of Kashmir dispute will be achieved through assembly and parliament. Some educated people are leaving their jobs, some other leading employees are also joining in and many turn-coats have too jumped into the field to deceive people and glamorize election process which has lost relevance in the eyes of people of Kashmir," Malik said. "From last 70 years Delhi has been using elections to prolong its forcible control on Jammu and Kashmir and delay the resolution of this issue. It is our national duty to remain vigilant and reject all such processes which are harming and hurting our national interest."

The JKLF chairman said that Prime Minister is arriving in Kashmir again. "When last time he was in Udhmapure, tour operators asked him to appeal tourists to visit Kashmir. But instead of heeding to their pleas, the PM in his address stated that Kashmiris should chose between tourism and terrorism, in a way he asked tourists not to visit Kashmir," Malik said.

"He (PM Modi) is coming to handover another power project running on our resources to NHPC and to deprive us further from using our water resources for our welfare."

Meanwhile on JRL call, JKLF leaders along with people today gathered at Madina Chowk and staged a protest against the miserable condition of Kashmiri inmates in jails.

"Kashmiri inmates have been put into cells and are beaten ruthlessly on daily basis. They are not even being allowed to meet their kith and kin from last one month. Many injured and ailing inmates are not being provided any medical facility," they said.
