Restrictions re-imposed in Srinagar
As posters calling people to gather outside the United Nations office in Srinagar have appeared in several regions in the city, restrictions have been re-imposed in the region to avoid the escalation of tension formed because of the removal of Article 370 and the bifurcation of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier, restrictions were reduced considerably though no change was made to the restriction on communication.
It is the nineteenth day of shutdown in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. At present, the state is under compete control of the security force.
It was the removal of Article 370 and the bifurcation of the state that pushed the state to this situation.
It is hoped that in the near future itself the state will go back to normal.
It was on early August that the bills regarding the bifurcation of the J&K and the removal of Article 370 were presented in the parliament.
Both were passed with a huge majority in the parliament. The bills even got the support of certain opposition parties including the BSP and AAP.
The victory of the bills is actually a victory of the BJP. By clearing the bills, the parliament has helped the saffron party to achieve one of its prime election promises.
