Disallowing PDP meet exposes BJP govt’s facade about normalcy in Kashmir

Srinagar, Sep 3 (UNI) Condemning the police action to disallow Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders from moving out of their houses for a party meeting in Srinagar, CPI(M) Thursday said it has once again exposed the hollow claims of the BJP government about normalcy in Kashmir.
“ It is highly astonishing that the BJP government is even afraid of allowing a political party to hold a meeting. For more than one year, the BJP government has been lying about normalcy in Kashmir. If that is the case then why were senior leaders of a political party placed under house arrest and not allowed to meet”, CPI(M) spokesman said Thursday afternoon in a statement.
The fact is that the only thing the revocation of Article 370 has achieved so far is a complete abrogation of democracy in J&K and an unconscionable suppression of civil and democratic rights, he said.
Spokesman said the government must release all political prisoners, including PDP president Mehbooba Mufti, without any further delay.
