PDP stages protest, demand LG’s resignation over deteriorating security situation in Kmr

SRINAGAR: In the wake of series of civilian killings in the past one week in Kashmir, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) demanded Lieutenant Governor (LG) Manoj Sinha’s resignation on Friday.

Addressing a press conference at the party headquarter, PDP Suhail Bukhari said that the LG has lost his moral authority to continue his job in the erstwhile state following the recent killing of the civilians in the valley.

“For the past two years, MHA is directly controlling the security situation in the valley. And look what it has led to us today,” Bukhari said. Bukhari said, the onus lies on the Government of India and its administration for the deteriorating security situation in the valley.

“No Kashmiri is feeling safe today. The situation has worsened here, ” he said. “We demand immediate resignation of the LG.” The PDP workers later staged a protest and tried to match towards the city center Lal Chowk. However, police throttled their attempt and limited them within the premises of their party office—(KNO)
