Troop buildup, yatra and tourist advisory up tension in Kashmir

Govt order asking yatris and tourists to immediately curtail their stay in Kashmir has led to more panic among the residents who were already on the edge due to orders on troop buildup. The movement of additional troops has sparked fears that Centre is planning to scrap an constitutional provision that disallows outsiders from buying land in the region. The government has, however, claimed that the advisories were issued following intelligence inputs of an attack on yatris and tourists.
