Rajputs hold protests in Jammu
Jammu, Mar 16: Demanding holiday on the birthday of erstwhile Dogra ruler Maharaja Hari Singh, Rajputs today held protests against Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti when she came here to inaugurate a park in his name.
Over 150 activists of youth wing of Jammu and Kashmir Rajput Sabha led by its chief Pawan Singh sat on ‘dharna’ (sit-in) in protest against the inauguration of Jammu Development Authority (JDA) park by Mehbooba.
They raised anti-Mehbooba and anti-BJP-PDP slogans and demanded holiday on the birthday of Maharaja, September 23.
Speaking to reporters, Pawan Singh said it was very unfortunate that BJP brought "anti-Jammu" Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who refused to grant holiday on the birthday of Maharaja to inaugurate the park and statute of Maharaja.
