Our supporters were stopped: BJP

Srinagar: Leaders of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday alleged that their workers and supporters were stopped to participate in Narendra Modi’s rally at Sher-i-Kashmir Cricket Stadium of Srinagar on Monday.

BJP Vice President and in charge Kashmir Affairs, Ramesh Arora told CSN that administration in the garb of heightened security arrangements stopped the supporters of BJP from Shopian, Anantnag, Kupwara and Ganderbal to participate in the public rally of Prime Minister.   

He added that hurdles were created in the way of the party workers, coming to Srinagar from different parts of Jammu and Kashmir, for the rally.

Ramesh Arora alleged that civil and police administration had closed down all bus and Sumo stands, preventing people from travelling to Srinagar for the rally. “Scores of vehicles carrying our supporters were stopped near Panta Chowk and were not allowed to proceed ahead. Stringent security measures barred our supporters to reach at the venue,” he said.

BJP media in charge for Kashmir, Altaf Thakur also alleged that BJP supporters and workers were stopped from participating in Prime Ministers rally on Monday. “Supporters found it hard to cross barricades and reach at the venue. Despite this the rally was a big success,” he added. (CNS)
