Rightwing activists protest against PAGD meet in Jammu
Jammu: Rashtriya Bajrang Dal activists on Saturday staged a protest in Narwal area a meeting of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) here.
The protesters assembled at the crossing point near Wave Mall.
A strong contingent of police had been deployed in and around Bathindi area covering most of streets and entry points, while the main roads leading towards the residence of National Conference (NC) president Dr Farooq Abdullah, where the PAGD meeting took place, had also been guarded.
The protesters were surrounded by the police force to prevent their movement, following which they burnt an effigy in protest amid sloganeering against the PAGD while terming them as ‘pro-Pakistan and pro-China.’
“Gupkar Agenda is limited to Gupkar road in Srinagar and we will not allow their agenda to spread in Jammu. They speak against the country in Srinagar and change their statement in Jammu while extending support to the country. They are not nationalists, but anti-nationals. They speak for Pakistan and get support from China,” a leader of the protestors said.
He said “Article 370 is history now and it will be taught to the students in schools that it once existed. It will never come back to J&K.”
