Let’s us all brace up for a big battle, yes, I am talking about a political battle between two powerful leaders. Kashmir’s most popular leader and hardcore pro-freedom voice Syed Ali Geelani and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi-who belongs from rightwing Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).
With Modi all set to visit Srinagar on November 7, Geelani has called for a ‘Million march’ on the same day, as a mark of protest against the PM’s visit. He has asked people to start preparations and assemble at Tourist reception Centre (TRC) ground to counter Prime Minister’s first ever rally in Srinagar after PDP-BJP formed coalition government in State.
“This rally will be a referendum to show whether PM’s rally will have large number of people or the rally of Geelani Sahab,” said Spokesperson of Hurriyat Conference (Geelani) Ayaz Akbar.
Akbar added that they have already submitted an application before the deputy commissioner Srinagar seeking permission for the rally.
Meanwhile sources in Jammu and Kashmir police said that security will be advanced in entire state to thwart any separatist movement.
Police officer added that it is more likely that all Hurriyat leaders will be detained or put under preventative custody.
“The prime minister of India Narendra Modi can’t buy the freedom demand of the Kashmiri people even if he will announce ten Lakh Crore, instead of one Lakh Crore and Kashmiri people will eat nothing but they will never bow before the atrocities and brutalities of India,” Geelani said.
Speculations are also rife in the state that the PM may send an invitation to the Hurriyat leaders for talks.
