PUF protests against highway ban

People United Front (PUF) on Friday staged a sit-in here against highway ban and abandoning rail services between Banihal and Kashmir from 10am to 3 pm.

Talking to  reporters Er Rasheed denounced the ban and called it gross violation of fundamental rights of people of Kashmir. “Who doesn’t know that more than security agencies Kashmiris make yatra a success. Not only common man but students, patients, government employees and business traders are suffering as entire Kashmir feels caged and jailed,” said, Er Rasheed.

He criticized NC leadership and said that people have a right to know what NC is doing over the issue. He said, “NC is crying about just votes and elections. If party claims to be representing regional aspirations, it must join hands with other forces to fight the state suppression. However despite having three MPs in Lok Sabha the party seems to have compromised everything.”
