Jammu, March 03 (Kashmir Voice): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, activists of Jammu and Kashmir National Panther Party staged a protest demonstration against Modi-led fascist Indian government’s brutal policies, at exhibition ground in Jammu.
According to media sources, the JKNPP activists led by Harsh Dev
Singh condemned the imposition of brutal taxes on Kashmiri people, rising inflation and increase in petroleum prices. The angry protestors raised slogans like “Jab se BJP Sarkaar Ayee, Kamar Tor Mehangayi Layee”, “BJP Ka Ek Hi Sapna, Ram Ram Japna, Paraya Maal Apna”, “Property Tax Wapis Lo”.
Speaking to media, Harsh Dev Singh said that with hefty excise duty on fuel already levied, the addition of new farm cess had sky rocketed the petrol price to Rs.100/- per litre.
And with the petrol and diesel becoming dearer, the price of domestic LPG cylinder had further soared by Rs 25 to hit Rs. 845 per cylinder. The bizarre hike in price of fuel and gas has added to the woes of the common masses, Harsh rued. He said that inflation had become a benchmark of BJP’s governance and looting people by burning holes in their pockets has become synonymous with Saffron party. Flaying the obnoxious decision of the Modi govt to impose property tax on lands and buildings in Jammu and Kashmir, Singh divulged that it was going to levy another obnoxious tax on the people to ramp up organized loot and institutionalized plunder of public money.KASHMIR VOICE
Srinagar, March 03 (Kashmir Voice): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, journalists are being booked under draconian laws as part of Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government’s cruel policy to muzzle press in the territory.
An analytical report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, said that IIOJK has become the worst place for journalists to work freely as they are forced to work in most trying conditions. Modi govt is using strong-arm-tactics to prevent journalists from speaking truth and strangulate media.
The report maintained that number of journalists have been killed, scores injured, abducted, threatened and tortured simply for doing their job in the occupied territory since 1989. Victimization of journalists has increased manifold after August 5, 2019, when Modi regime imposed indefinite lockdown in the territory.
India, the report added, besides harassing and booking Kashmiri journalists, is deliberately presenting misleading reports to defame the fraternity and organizations for exposing Indian brutalities in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The entire exercise is carried out to stop journalist community from showing New Delhi’s ugly face in IIOJK to the world, but the fact is that it cannot hide its crimes by curbing press and implicating media persons in fake cases. Kashmiri journalists are determined to fight India’s assault on media freedom and have proved their mettle by upholding the highest journalistic standards amid difficult conditions in the past. The report urged global community to come to the rescue of Kashmiri journalists from assault by aggressor India in IIOJK, saying that cases against local journalists should serve as a wake-up call for international media fraternity.
