Modi govt urged to lift restrictions, communication blockade
Srinagar, September 27 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the grim situation remains unchanged in Kashmir valley on 54th consecutive day, today, due to continued restrictions and communication blackout imposed by Narendra Modi-led communal government.
Normal life continues to remain crippled in the Kashmir valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region due to the snapping of mobile and internet services and closure of shops, markets, business establishments and educational institutions as well as absence of public transport. Thousands of Indian troops and police personnel deployed in every nook and corner of the Kashmir valley keep the residents confined to their homes.
While parents are reluctant to send their wards to schools in the prevailing precarious situation, a very thin attendance of teachers was reported. Attendance of employees in government offices was recorded constantly thin due to the non-availability of public transport. Train service in the occupied territory also remains suspended.
Meanwhile, the occupation authorities intensified restrictions in Srinagar and other areas of the Kashmir valley to prevent people from staging anti-India demonstrations after Juma prayers, today.
Indian troops continue massive cordon and search operation in Marwah Colony, Link road, Lanyal and other areas of Kishtwar town, causing huge inconvenience to the local people.
On the other hand, over 780 prominent Indian scientists, researchers and academicians from premier institutions, through two statements, have asked the Modi government to end the restrictions and communications blockade in occupied Kashmir. The statements drew attention to the impact of the restrictions on academic institutions and condemned the snapping of communications and internet services in the occupied territory.
