In an emergency meeting, Jammu media persons today unanimously decided to boycott a faction of Panun Kashmir and Youth All India Kashmiri Samaj (YAIKS) after a group of activists led by Ashwani Chrungoo (Panun Kashmir Movement) and R K Bhat (Youth All India Kashmiri Samaj YAIKS), misbehaved and entered into heated arguments with journalists near Press Club this morning.
The KPs had assembled outside Press Club Jammu in commemoration of the Kashmiri Pandit Balidaan Divas. The KPs, however, tried to protest in the area which has been banned by the District Magistrate for such activities.
The matter started when said leaders along with the activists, forcibly entered into restricted parking area of Press Club and held a protest demonstration.
When, the Press Club’s security guards asked them to vacate the place, as the area is being banned for protests, these leaders and their activists started abusing guards.—GK
