Hartal on Thursday: Geelani

SRINAGAR: Beginning his stated agitation against the crackdown on youth, Syed Ali Geelani, Chairman of a faction of Hurriyat Conference, Tuesday called for shutdown on May 15.

The call for shutdown came three days after the octogenarian leader had threatened the government by saying “if raids, arrests and atrocities doesn’t stop till May 13, we will issue a disciplined program”.

The Hurriyat chairman said in the statement, “We had already issued a deadline to government till May 13 to free the youth who been jailed but the government has not accepted our demand of freeing youth from detentions and only few have been released. That is why Hurriyat Conference is calling for valley-wide shutdown on  Thursday , May 15, against arrests, raids, violence and searches.”

The octogenarian leader has appealed people including transporters and traders to adhere to his call.
