In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad has reiterated the demand for restoration of the statehood of the territory before assembly elections.

Ghulam Nabi Azad addressing a public rally in Ramban, Jammu, said the people of Kashmir are suffering as there is no alternative to the democratic government.

“The bureaucracy is no substitute for the popu-lar government. We cannot hold them responsible for their failure to mitigate the sufferings of the public. They are not meant to visit far-off places and listen to the public as they are constitutionally as-signed the job of working in offices,” he added.

Ghulam Nabi Azad claimed the authorities are not treating everyone equally and are taking “anti-people” steps like evicting people from lands that have been in their possession for decades.—KMS
