Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], October 8 (ANI): The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday hold a protest in Srinagar in the wake of series of terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir and demanded Lieutenant Governor (LG) Manoj Sinha's resignation.
Addressing a press conference, PDP Spokesperson Syed Suhail Bukhari said, "We strongly condemn and demand that Governor Manoj Sinha should give resignation as he totally failed to handle the situation."
"We ask the Government of India why it happened if militancy is over and the situation is normal. Since the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A, the home ministry is monitoring the situation then why these incidents happened. So, it is clear Government of India, security agencies totally failed to control the situation," said Bukhari.
He further said that the incident of civilian killings is very unfortunate and against the Kashmiriyat. "So, we appeal to the people of Jammu and Kashmir to be united to defeat vested interests of people, who are trying to disturb peace and damage communal harmony. Now, we are going for peaceful protest," he added.
