New Delhi, August 12, 2019 (PPI-OT): In India , the CPI-M General Secretary, Sitaram Yechury, has said that the people of Kashmir have been kept imprisoned in their own homes and warned the government that the impact of changing Jammu and Kashmir’s status would be felt in other states with the special status.
While greeting people on the occasion of Eid al-Azha, Yechury, who along with another party leader had been denied entry to Srinagar on Friday, said he still didn’t know the condition of his party colleagues in Kashmir.
“Eid is an occasion of joy and celebrations, and our thoughts are with the people of Kashmir who have been kept imprisoned in their own homes. We still don’t know how or where our comrades in Kashmir are,” he tweeted.
“We are a country of diverse languages, religions, cultures and ideas; this is our strength. The impact of undemocratically and forcibly altering Jammu and Kashmir’s status will be felt in other states with special status. Let’s not forget that most are on India’s borders,” Yechury said.
