Houses of PDP minister, Khansahab MLA attacked
ANANTNAG/Srinagar: As resistance leadership has asked the people to paste bills on the houses of panches, sarpanches and other political activists, asking them to support the raging anti-India uprising, several staunch activists of National Conference including a sarpanch and party halqa president Friday announced their resignation at Khiram, the most populous village in Bijbehara assembly segment.
Pro-freedom protesters also attacked the houses of two pro-Indian politicians, including a sitting minister, Aesia Naqash, and MLA from Khansahab constituency Hakeem Mohammad Yaseen.
At Khiram, the resignation letters on behalf of political activists were read out at Jamia Masjid Khiram, which also houses the holy relic of prophet Mohammad (SAW), soon after the Friday sermon.
The letter was read out by Imam of the Masjid and custodian of holy relic , Nizam-u-din, on behalf of NC halqa president and sarpanch and other political activists.
“We announce our resignation from the party. By today we won’t be associated with any mainstream political party and will extend our all possible support to the ongoing mass movement,” the joint resignation letter by NC activists read.
Last Friday, a PDP worker and sarpanch of another locality of the same village had announced resignation from his position.
“I announce resignation as Panchayat head of the village and dissociate myself from any political party. From today I will support the cause people are fighting for,” the PDP activist had announced after the Friday sermon last week from the same stage.
Last week, NC leader and the party’s youth general secretary who fought two elections unsuccessfully on party ticket announced his resignation at a sit-in protest program organised by the people in Cheeni Chowk area of the town.
The NC leader while announcing his resignation vowed to fight for Kashmir’s freedom from “Indian occupation”.
He also raised pro-freedom and anti-India slogans like “Bharat ke Aiwanoo ko Aag laga do Aag laga do’.
