SRINAGAR: Awami Ittehad Partys anti BJP-PDP campaign reached Budgam Tuesday with hundreds joining the protest march led by its chief Er Rasheed, a statement issued by the party here read.
The protestors raised slogans against industrial policy, composite townships, proposed sainik colonies, NEET issue and making shelters for non-state subjects.
Er Rasheed addressed a gathering in Budgam chowk and asked New Delhi not to provoke Kashmiris by implementing RSS agenda. He said, Revelations made by housing department about making shelters for so called homeless people is a very disturbing issue. In Jammu non-state subjects in huge numbers have been already residing there and now reportedly government is hinting at providing very basic rights to west Pakistani refugees. But all these designs need to be defeated cutting across political affiliations.

Er Rasheed asked government not to force Kashmiris to send non-state subjects out of the state and not to undermine the might of the people.
