Restore security, ensure safety of Congress leaders: Mir tells Govt


Srinagar, Apr 02: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) has questioned the move of the Government of withdrawing security cover of party leaders and sought explanation from the Government.
In a statement issued, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G.A. Mir hit out at both Centre & State Governments over withdrawing security of Congress party leaders, saying that the move amounts to restricting the movement of Congress leaders in the upcoming elections, which is not only serious, but highly condemnable.

While lodging a strong protest against the Government over withdrawal of security of various congress leaders, G.A. Mir said it has also been reported that security cover of other party functionaries and seniors’ leaders of party was being removed for unknown reasons.


“The lives of Congress leaders are being put to risk by withdrawing their Security aiming to restrict their political movements, but the Congress Party will not be cowed down by such pressure tactics,” Mir added and said God ford if any untoward thing will happen to Congress Leaders, then the State Govt especially the Security agencies will be solely responsible.

Mir asked the Government not to play with the lives and shun this biased attitude towards Congress Leaders and demanded adequate security to all the Party Leaders, he said.

“I emphasize the Government to ensure proper security cover to Congress leaders to ensure free and fair upcoming Lok Sabha Elections in the State,” Mir tells Government.
