Srinagar, April 24 : Several JK Bank and government employees besides SPOs working with police department were spotted at a gathering by PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti at Town Hall Pulwama in the southern district on Wednesday.
Official sources told that several JK Bank employees posted at Shajimarg JK bank and at Zonal Office Pulwama attended the gathering by Mehbooba Mufti. Many SPOs and other employees of government departments, according to sources also attended the gathering.
Mehbooba also led a protest march of party activists in the southern Kashmir district against the suspension of cross-Line of Control (LoC) trade and ban on Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI).
The protest march was taken out from Town Hall Pulwama to deputy commissioner’s office and Mehbooba demanded the rescinding of the order to suspend the cross-LoC trade. She also sought immediate release of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik from custody.
“Malik is not in good health. I want to tell the Government of India that if God forbid, his health worsens, then the situation here will deteriorate further which will be very difficult to control. Our fight is against militants, but you should not harass their families,” she told reporters.
She also sought revocation of ban on JeI and an end to the ban on movement of civilian traffic for two days a week on Jammu-Srinagar Highway, the only surface link connecting Kashmir Valley. (GNS)
