JAMMU: Protests were held by some organisations in Jammu and demanded handing over of Kashmir to the Army.
Carrying banner “crush Pakistan”, the protests, led by Jammu West Assembly movement President Sunil Dimple, held anti-Pakistan slogan.
“Kashmir should be handed over to the Army as situation is worsening in the region, Dimple said.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh will be visiting the border areas to reach out to the people and meet some local delegations at Jammu on the second day of his visit to Jammu and Kashmir today.
Talking to reporters, Dimple said that the protests were held against Pakistan for creating terror on border. They will also hold dharna to convey the message to the Home Minister that it was not the time to celebrate Iftar parties, but to take hard steps in J-K.
Dimple appealed to Singh to stay on the International Border (IB) for a night in Arnia, RS Pura sectors with the people and know their hardships.
He said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Singh are enjoying the Iftar parties when our soldiers are being killed on the borders.

They raised anti-government slogans and alleged “prime minister and the home minister are reaching out to anti-India forces, stone-pelters and Hurriyat conference in Kashmir during their visit, but forget the displaced Kashmiri migrants.”
