Srinagar, Aug 29 (KNS): A protest led by PDP spokesperson Thakur Abhijeet Singh Jasrotia was on Wednesday carried out in Kathua against attempts of tinkering with Article 35 A.
All the participants including party workers and people from all walks of life were holding candles in their hands.
Thakur Abhijeet Singh said this candle march was to show light to people of J&K as some people with vested interest are trying to keep people of Jammu & Kashmir in dark though a malicious campaign against article 35 A adding ‘people were also made aware about the benefits of this article to permanent state subjects for employment, scholarship & other avenues’.
Speaking on this occasion Thakur Abhijeet Singh said he selected Kathua intentionally for this protest because Kathua is Gateway of Jammu & Kashmir which connects J&K to rest of India and correlated Kathua with Article 35 A because Kathua plays the same role for the state as Article 35A does, which serves as a bridge in between India & Jammu & Kashmir. He further praised his party president Mehbooba Mufti for her serious efforts in this matter where she fought for past two years just to safeguard this article & applauded her about her stand in this matter which remained same whether party was in power or out of power.
