Sopore: People from Zaingeer area of Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district Friday held protest demanding tehsil status for the area.
Large gathering of people from different areas of Zaingeer belt came out on roads and started protesting in demand of Tehsil status or connecting the area with Sopore instead of Dangerpora.
Angry protesters alleged that area deserves Tehsil status but has been neglected by the authorities time and again. They said that if government was not interested in giving tehsil status to Zaingeer the area should be connected with Sopore instead of Dangerpora.
Some protestors told Kashmir Reader that they are planning indefinite protest if their demand is not fulfilled. They sought the intervention of Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti in this regard.
