SRINAGAR: Awami Ittehad Party led by its chief and independent lawmaker Er Rasheed Tuesday started a district wise protest campaign against coalition govts anti-Muslim agenda from Baramulla, a statement issued by the party read.
Hundreds of party supporters from different areas of Baramulla district started the march from Main chowk and proceeded towards Deputy Commissioners office.
The protesters carrying banners, placards and flags were shouting anti-BJP slogans, no to Sainik colonies, composite towns and an end to discrimination with Kashmiris in developmental and other issues, the statement read.
Addressing the gathering outside the DC office Er Rasheed rejected CM Mehboobas clarification about sainik colonies.
He said, Why should Kashmiris believe Mehboobas clarification if its alliance partner BJP is coming day in and day out in support of these so called sainik colonies. The logic that the colonies are meant for local retired army personal cannot be accepted as once they retire from their services they must reside at places of their choice or native places, the same way jawans and officers of J&K police and other government officials have been doing.
We will never allow Kashmir to become another Palestine.
