In Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, local police foiled the BJP-RSS’s plan to hoist Indian flag in Srinagar ahead of October 27, which is observed as black day in the territory.
Police arrested three BJP workers who were trying to hoist Indian flag on clock tower at Lal Chowk in Srinagar.
Pertinently, police on Sunday also foiled two separate attempts made by members of Hindu extremist members to hoist the Indian flag at the PDP headquarters in Gandhinagar in Jammu.
The attempts to hoist the flag came two days after PDP President Mehbooba Mufti said she would not contest elections or hoist the Indian flag till Jammu &Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 is restored.
Moreover, in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won the so-called general council elections for the sixth Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) Leh.
The Leh unit of BJP bagged 15 out of a total of 26 seats. The Congress claimed 9 seats and Independents were victorious on 2 seats. Aam Admi Party also contested the elections but failed to win any seat. The elections took place on Thursday and recorded a 65.07 percent turnout.
Regional parties including National Conference and the Peoples Democratic Party chose to stay away from the election. Kargil district of Ladakh had separate hill council which was elected in 2018 for a five-year term.—KMS
