Shutdown on sham Indian polls tomorrow

Srinagar, April 28 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has reiterated his appeal for complete boycott of the fourth phase of the so-called Indian Parliamentary elections, tomorrow.

Complete shutdown will also be observed in Kulgam district on the second leg of the three-phased parliamentary election drama on Islamabad’s Lok Sabha seat on the day. Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said that the boycott would send a message to the world that the people of Jammu and Kashmir wanted to get rid of the forcible Indian occupation of their motherland.
