Restrictions in Srinagar to prevent separatist rally

Srinagar, July 13  The authorities on Monday imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar and placed separatist leaders under house arrest to thwart a rally called by the separatists.

A controversy of sorts has surfaced between the ruling coalition partners, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over Monday’s official functions.

Sayeed-led PDP regards those killed in 1931 police firing as martyrs since they laid down their lives fighting against the autocratic rule of a king.

The BJP on the other hand celebrates the Dogra Maharaja rule in Jammu and Kashmir as a golden period.

State BJP vice president Ramesh Arora has said those killed in 1931 had risen against a genuine ruler of the state.

The party leaders in the state have decided to stay away from all official functions on Monday connected with the commemoration of 1931 martyrs.
