AAC spokesperson said that the youth are enrolling themselves and the decision in this regard will be taken shortly.
On Sunday, Government withdrew all security and government facilities provided to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and three other Hurriyat leaders.
The Government has withdrawn security and any government facilities provided to separatist leaders including Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Prof Abdul Ghani Bhat, Bilal Gani Lone and Shabir Shah. “All security and any vehicles provided to the separatist leaders would stand withdrawn by Sunday evening,” officials said.
A spokesman of Hurriyat Conference (M) in a statement on Sunday said, “The government and its propagandist anti-Kashmir media has repeatedly been racking up the issue of police personnel provided to the resistance leadership to politicize, knowing fully well it has no bearing, nor can it in any way change the reality of the lingering Kashmir dispute.”
