After landing in Hyderabad for the BJP public meeting, Shri Narendra Modi strongly condemned the manner in which Shri Arun Jaitley and other Opposition leaders have been prevented by the Jammu and Kashmir Government to travel to Kishtwar, which has been witnessing instances of violence over the last few days. He termed this step as undemocratic and said that it shows the Government does not want the truth about the violence to come out.
Shri Modi wrote on Twitter, “Landed in Hyderabad. Heard that Shri Arun Jaitley & other Opposition leaders are not allowed to go to Kishtwar. This is undemocratic.” He added, “Stopping Opposition leaders in this manner shows that the Government does not want the truth about the Kishtwar violence to come out.”
Apart from Shri Jaitley, other BJP leaders including Shri Avinash Rai Khanna, Shri RP Singh and PDP leader Ms. Mehbooba Mufti have been prevented from travelling to Kishtwar.
