Srinagar: CPI (M) Jammu and Kashmir on Monday held a protest against the charge sheet filed against Sitaram Yechury, ongoing restrictions on 4G mobile internet and unemployment in the Union Territory.
Scores of CPI (M) workers and leaders assembled at Srinagar’s Press Enclave and held a protest demonstration.
Abdul Rashid, CPI (M) member from Zainapora area of Shopian district who led the protest condemned what he termed as a false case against Yechury and demanded that his name should be withdrawn from the charge sheet.
He added that it is unfortunate that people of Jammu and Kashmir are being deprived of 4G mobile internet services and demanded the ban should be immediately lifted.
Rashid further stated the unemployment has taken a heavy toll on the youth, adding that the unemployed youth should be provided unemployment allowances until they get any job.
He also said that the highway should be thrown open round-the-clock, saying that the transportation of fruits and other agricultural produce should not get affected. (KNO)
