It’s been 20 days since the people of Jammu & Kashmir had their freedom & civil liberties curtailed. Leaders of the Opposition & the Press got a taste of the draconian administration & brute force unleashed on the people of J&K when we tried to visit Srinagar yesterday. pic.twitter.com/PLwakJM5W5— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) August 25, 2019
Rahul Gandhi further wrote in the tweet that while trying to visit the opposition and press to visit Jammu and Kashmir, it was realized that harsh force and administrative brutality is being used on the people of the state. He said that the leaders of the opposition and the press felt the administrative brutality in Jammu and Kashmir. Significantly, a delegation of 11 opposition leaders including Rahul Gandhi reached Srinagar on Saturday to visit the valley. However, the administration officials did not allow the leaders and sent them back.
Rahul Gandhi has also posted a video with his tweet. In this video, Rahul is seen telling the officials that he has come to Srinagar on the call of the Governor. In the video, he is seen suggesting that he should be allowed to tour the valley in person, not in groups. Rahul Gandhi alleged through video that media persons who accompanied the delegation were misbehaved, it is clear that the situation is not normal in Jammu and Kashmir.
At the same time, on this matter, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satyapal Malik, on Saturday, made a fierce attack on the former Congress President and said that right now there is no need of Rahul Gandhi. His need was here when his colleagues were speaking in Parliament. If he wants to spoil the situation and come here and repeat the lie he has told in Delhi, it is not good.
State Governor Satyapal Malik had said that I had invited Rahul Gandhi in good faith but, he started doing politics. Satyapal Malik said that it was nothing but political action by these people. Political parties should keep the national interest in mind at this time. It is worth noting that recently, the Central Government had decided to divide the state into two union territories by neutralizing Articles 370 and 35A from Jammu and Kashmir.
On this visit of Congress leaders, it was said on behalf of Jammu and Kashmir administration that all the leaders are requested to refrain from visiting Srinagar. Due to them people here may also face problems. There are still some restrictions in many areas. At the same time, BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi attacked the Congress and said that political tourism should be stopped. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are growing with confidence. You are doing this to please the separatists. There will be no benefit from political tourism.
