In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and National Panthers Party (NPP) staged separate protests in Jammu, demanding repeal of the new land laws which have paved the way for non-Kashmiris to buy land in the territory.
PDP activists, led by General Secretary, Surinder Choudhary, assembled at the party headquarters at Gandhi Nagar and held a rally to lodge their resentment against the BJP-led Indian government over the new land law. However, the protesters were stopped by police from marching on the main road and they later dispersed peacefully.
“Our protest is against the anti-people policies of the BJP, especially the new land law. This land belongs to our future generations and the BJP is cheating the people of Jammu and misleading them,” Choudhary said.—KMS
