Srinagar, February 02 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown will be observed, tomorrow, to register protest against Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s visit to the territory.

Call for the shutdown has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik. Narendra Modi is visiting Srinagar, Ladakh and Jammu to lay foundation stones of developmental projects.

It said that a person who in his pursuit to crush Kashmiris’ genuine demand for right to self-determination ordered killings, arrests, destruction of properties and other oppressive tactics deserved to be welcomed only with protest.

Meanwhile, the occupation authorities have beefed up the so-celled security across occupied Kashmir ahead of Narendra Modi’s visit by deploying Indian police and troops in strength in Srinagar, Jammu and other areas. The troops and police personnel after setting up security check-points in different areas are conducting thorough checking and frisking of vehicles and commuters. »
