Srinagar: Wearing black shrouds as a mark of protest and shouting slogans against Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, activists of Jammu and Kashmir Youth National Conference (JKYNC) took out a protest march on Tuesday, against the use of force and harassment by the government, from the party headquarter Nawai-Subah to Press Enclave in Srinagar.
Led by its president Salman Sagar, the activists condemned the use of force against people including students.
Sagar said the protest was against the “unprecedented force” used by the government against the people, especially against the students of various colleges, on Monday.
He expressed solidarity with the students and claimed that even while Kashmir was burning the government was not waking up from its sleep.
“We do not even see any condemnations from them on the viral videos. If this government thinks that nothing is happening, then it is blind, deaf and dumb. We want them to see, hear and say something as the people had given them a mandate. We want the Governor’s Rule to be imposed in the state so that people get respite,” Sagar said.
Sagar said their protest was symbolic and the organisation wants to warn the government that if it does not stop “oppression” on people, the NC will come out on roads.
