Punjab Police thwart protest by group against abrogation of Article 370 provisions
| Sunday | 15th September, 2019
A few Punjab-based outfits—under the banner of Kashmiri Kaumi Sangharsh Samarthan Samiti—were to hold a protest at the Dussehra Ground with support from some farmers’ organisations.
The administration said it had rejected the Samiti’s request to hold protest because of security concerns and also because the organisers had sought permission at a short notice.
A protester from Sirhind, Punjab, who was sent back in a bus by police from the railway station, said they wanted to protest against abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution.
“The decision of the Centre on revocation of Article 370 is not a correct one and special status which J&K enjoyed earlier should be restored,” the protester told reporters.
Meanwhile, reports said a group of people under the banner of the Samiti protested against the abrogation of Article 370 provisions in Sangrur district.
