Jablipora Residents Protest, Demand Removal of Army Camp From Playground

Srinagar: Independent MLA Er Rasheed on Saturday joined protesters of Jablipora who had traveled from their village in south Kashmir to Srinagar to demand the removal of an army camp from a playground there.
The protesters, including Rasheed, who staged a demonstration at Press Enclave in Srinagar, raised slogans against the state government and demanded the removal of army camp from the village where two army camps already exist.

The protestors also burned cricket gear and questioned building an army camp in the village when already two camps exist over there.
Rasheed lashed out at Union government for ‘falsely’ portraying ‘Khelo India’ programme.
“On one hand, Modiji is trumpeting Khelo India, while playground is snatched in Kashmir from the youth,” he said.
MLA Langate also took a jibe at chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, as according to him she has failed to demilitarize Kashmir.
“Mehbooba Ji had been advocating demilitarization. Why then does she want to turn south Kashmir into an army garrison?” he asked.
