Srinagar, Jan 09: The several working Non-Governmental Organization (NGO’s) based in Srinagar, J&K were not allowed to meet the fifteen members of foreign delegates who were on a two day visit to Jammu and Kashmir in order to access the situation.

The various NGO’s were not allowed to meet the delegates who later on returned back disappointedly. While speaking to media, these NGO’s accused the security personnel for not allowing them to meet the delegation.

Mudasir Aziz, chairperson of Kashmir Youth Power said, “I have been waiting for the meeting with the foreign delegates in order to convey our day to day issues that we are facing at the present times but unfortunately we were not allowed”

He said that the situation in Kashmir has improved a lot and the need for imposing restrictions are just futile. He further added, “Our main issue was the restoration of internet services so that Kashmir will be connected back again to the world. As the prolonged internet gag in Kashmir has passed a wrong message to the world community and someone needs to act on this on urgent basis.”

However, different political parties has issued different statement over the delegation visit as the People’s Democratic Party has expelled eight of its members on meeting foreign delegation and Lt. Governor.

It said the party disciplinary committee has recommended the expulsion of all these leaders from the basic membership of the party.

The expelled leaders have thrown their weight behind former PDP leader Syed Altaf Bukhari and were part of the delegation that met Lieutenant Governor G C Murmu On Tuesday.

They also met the visiting envoys from 15 countries, who arrived here on Thursday on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir. This is the first visit by diplomats since August last year when Jammu and Kashmir’s special status was revoked and it was downsized to a union territory.

“In view of the development post-August 5 and the unilateral move of the government of India which has violated the will and hurt the sentiments of people, it has come to attention of the party that certain party leaders have been part of the parleys which go against the interests of the state, official position and core beliefs of the party,” the PDP party release said.
