Srinagar : National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah on Wednesday led a protest march against the restriction on movement of civil traffic on Srinagar-Jammu highway.
The protest march was held at Pantha Chowk on the Srinagar-Jammu highway. While the army stationed in the Valley has said they don’t have any information about the closure of the highway, the outgoing union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that he would not revoke the order banning the civilian movement.
According to the order issued last week, the highway from Baramulla in north Kashmir to Udhampur in Jammu will remain closed every Wednesday and Sunday till May 31 to ensure movement of the forces’ personnel for the election purpose. (KNS)
