Suspension of internet is like reverting to ‘stone age’: Azad
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad today said that suspension of the Internet services was no solution to the Kashmir issue. He said suspension of the Internet services in the Kashmir was like revisiting the ‘stone age’.
“Kashmir is one of the prominent tourist destinations and by snapping the Internet services, it seems like living in the ‘stone age’,’’ Azad told the media persons during his visit to Doda district.
The Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha also lashed out at the Centre and the PDP-BJP Government in the State for ‘mishandling’ the situation in Kashmir.
