Shiv Sena today slammed the Jammu and Kashmir government for extending amnesty to stonepelters in the Valley and demanded immediate withdrawal of cases against those arrested during Amarnath land row. Over 300 Shiv Sena activists led by state unit chief Ashok Gupta held a protest rally and raised anti-government slogans. “We oppose the policy of amnesty to stonepelters in Kashmir Valley.
This will boost the morale of separatists and anti-Indian elements involved in violence,” Gupta told reporters. He also demanded that all those people, who were arrested during 2008 Amarnath land row, should be give similar treatment and cases registered against them should be withdrawn. Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah announced general amnesty scheme for youths involved in over 1,200 cases of stone-pelting in the Valley during last summer’s unrest.
