Pahalgam: Alleging that security forces are harassing people on the national highway, National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah said such acts should be stopped at once.
‘When I was coming to Pahalgam from Srinagar, I saw that security forces were stopping people at several places on the highway…. This is not a good thing. Nowhere in the country are people stopped at so many places on the highway and people travel normally on it,’ Dr Abdullah, who is the Member of Parliament (MP) from Srinagar, told reporters in world famous health resort of Pahalgam.
Dr Abdullah said security forces should stop harassing people at once. ‘They (security forces) should let people travel in peace on the highway and stop harassing people without any reason,’ he added.
Terming death of children in Bihar due to encephalitis as unfortunate, the NC president said the government should take measure to save lives. ‘More than 100 children have died in Bihar due to encephalitis and it is very unfortunate. I pray to God that more lives are not lost to such diseases. The government should take measure to save lives,’ he added.
