PDP holds demonstrations across Jammu regionApril 9th, 2011 - 9:46 pm ICT by IANS
Jammu, April 9 (IANS) The People’s Democratic Party Saturday confined to the Jammu region its demonstrations to press for an early resolution of the Kashmir issue, and put off its agitation in the Kashmir valley where a religious leader was assassinated a day earlier.
Workers of the main opposition party in the state held demonstrations at the sub-district headquarters across the Jammu region and demanded that the central government should go in for “early resolution of the Kashmir problem”.
The party did not go ahead with its demonstrations in the valley and decided to postpone the stir in view of the assassination of religious leader Showkat Ahmad Shah in Srinagar Friday.
Party president Mehbooba Mufti had called for “ending the uncertainty in Jammu and Kashmir which is haunting the state in the absence of a permanent solution of the crisis for the past over 60 years”.
