Srinagar: Chairperson of Kashmir Tehreek-e-, Zamrooda Habib, on Wednesday tried to demolish the foundation stone of a multi-car parking project about an hour after it was put in place by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti near press enclave in Srinagar.
Zamrooda Habib along with some of her party activists appeared at the press enclave soon after Mehbooba Mufti left the place and pulled off the plastic cover of the foundation stone while trying to strike it down with a brick.
Later, talking to Kashmir Reader, Habib said that the attempt to demolish the foundation stone was a way of protest against the blinding of more than a thousand persons under the PDP-BJP government led by Mehbooba Mufti.
“For whom is she (Mehbooba Mufti) making multi-car parkings? People sold their vehicles to treat their children injured by the government forces. She should die in shame,” Habib said.
She said that her atack on the foundation stone was an expression of hate and anger towards the Mehbooba-led government. “Every time she has been shamelessly talking about (her father) Mufti’s vision but she has left a thousand of our youth visionless. She should be more concerned about those people who still are on hospital beds awaiting a ray of light in their eyes,” Habib said.
“How can those people whose limbs were amputated ride a car or a bike?” Hamid questioned. She said that the Tehreek-e-Khwateen protest was organised as a reminder of the Unitied Nations resolution for the right to self-determination of people of Kashmir.
“Even after more than 70 years, the issue pending in the United Nations is yet to be resolved. Our just and legitimate struggle would continue till we achieve our goals,” she said.
The police deployed at the press enclave prevented Habib and her fellow activists from demolishing the foundation-stone of the multi-level car parking.
