JK govt to decide about restoration of internet, release of detainees: Madhav

SRINAGAR: BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Thursday said that decision about internet restoration and release of political leaders will be taken by the local administration after security review.
“Internet services have been restored in hotels. Situation is improving in Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir administration will take a decision based on security assessment,” he said.
“Several leaders have been released from detention. Jammu and Kashmir administration is taking decision on their release as per the security assessment,” he added.
Internet has been suspended in the Valley in run up to abrogation of Article 370 on August 5. Also politicians including former chief ministers including Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti are under detention
since then.
Madhav was speaking on the sidelines of a football match played in the heart of the Srinagar city. He had come to watch the match which was being played out between real FC and Chennai city FC.
Madhav also accused the Opposition for provoking people to incite violence against Citizenship Amendment Act.
“Citizenship Amendment Act was passed to give citizenship rights to persecuted communities of three countries. National Population Register has been approved by the Centre. Both are not linked to National Citizenship
Register. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also clarified that no decision has been taken on NCR and is premature to talk on this,” he said.
Madhav said “lies and misinformation” were being spread to provoke people to resort to violence.
“This (CAA) law is not against any religion or community. There is no discrimination with Muslims in India. People from all religions are eligible to get citizenship in India like Pakistan singer Adnan Sami received,” he
BJP leader said NCR process was conducted in Assam under Supreme Court monitoring. “First NCR was done in 1951 but could not undertake in Assam because of various reasons,” he said.
He denied use of force by cops in Uttar Pradesh saying there was no highhandedness by police.
“Police did not vandalize any property. A lot of policemen got injured. But there were some people who deliberately targeted the public and private property,” he said.
