Geelani pays tributes to militants killed in Shopian gunfight

Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani has paid tributes to the militants, who were killed in a gunfight with the security forces in south Kashmir’s Shopian district on Saturday.

 In a statement here Geelani said, “The policy of suppression and repression in Jammu and Kashmir has failed to yield any positive results for Delhi. We also condemn the use of bullets and pellets against the protestors, in Shopian today.”

He urged people to stay away from the polls. “The participation in any election may amount to treason and betrayal with sacrifices rendered by our youth.  We need to strengthen our faith and as a nation we need to be optimistic,” Geelani said while addressing to the youth.
