Chairman Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has warned those indulging in illegal constructions in and around Dal Lake in Srinagar under the garb of ongoing unrest to stop their activities immediately.
"The reports of unauthorised and illegal constructions coming up at various places especially on the Dal and foreshore road is a cause of concern. We warn such people to stop their activities forthwith," he said in a statement.
He asked the people to take such "shameless" people to task.
"At this crucial juncture of the resistance movement it is incumbent upon all people especially the youth to act with discipline, maturity and responsibility so that no harm is caused to our sacred cause, and no one is allowed to give it a bad name", the statement said.
Staying alert and defeating such forces is the collective responsibility of the people at this time, the statement said, adding it is also important that hooliganism of all sorts is discouraged.
