Mehbooba Mufti leads candlelight march

Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday evening led a candlelight march here to protest against “assaults” on J&K’s special position.

Shouting slogans in favour of unity among mainstream parties and Articles 35A and 370, the PDP activists took out a march outside residence of National Conference president Farooq Abdullah as soon as the All-Party meeting ended.

“I along with PDP party workers am holding a candlelight march from Gupkar Road to Lal Chowk tonight. Urgent need for GOI to allay fears in the Valley & reach out to people. J&K’s special identity is a matter of right & not privilege,” Mehbooba tweeted.
