Srinagar: Following the NIT controversy, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on Monday took out a protest march in the Lal Chowk area of Srinagar.
The police have detained the organisers, including Yasin Malik; however, the separatists have planned for a ‘bandh’ tomorrow.
The government in-fact has officially come out with a statement that they were doing everything they can to hold such protests. This is a long-drawn process and a challenge for the coalition.
On Sunday, dozens of marchers had tried to enter Jammu and Kashmir to express solidarity with the protesting non-local students of National Institute of Technology (NIT). They were stopped by authorities on Sunday who urged them to call off the march.
The marchers carrying the national flag entered the state at Lakhanpur in Kathua district to move to the Valley to express solidarity with the protesting students at NIT Srinagar.
District administration officials including the district magistrate and the senior superintendent of police (SSP) reached the spot and asked the marchers not to proceed further.
