Srinagar, Aug 10: On the 2nd day of Nation-Wide Programme, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee held Padhyatra to celebrate 75th year of India’s independence covering 75 kms in Anantnag District of South Kashmir on Wednesday.

During the Padhyatra the JKPCC president Ghulam Ahmad Mir addressed largely attended public gatherings and appealed people to rise to occasion to defeat BJP’s nefarious designs and divisive politics as the Modi government is hell bent upon to damage the very foundation of the largest democracy by eroding and undermining the Institutions to serve their vested interests.
It should be the paramount for every person to secure the democracy, civil liberties and fight out the BJP for adopting anti people policies aiming to cover its failures. Modi government has unleashed coercion to crush the dissent and genuine voices, which has to be dealt with iron hands, Mir added.

Referring to the current situation in J&K, Mir said, “Modi government has snatched our jobs, statehood and downgrading J&K into two union territories aiming to fulfill their communal agenda, terming it as a punishment to J&K people on the part of ruling BJP.”
