Srinagar, Feb 18: CPI(M) leader Muhamad Yousuf Tarigami on Friday said that the decision of the government to downgrade and withdraw security of political leaders, activists of different parties is arbitrary and has no justification.
The decision could endanger the lives of these leaders and activists.
The political process in the region is itself a difficult task. The activists cutting across the political line are doing their bit to strengthen the political process. Hindrance should not be put on them rather they should be encouraged.
However, unfortunately, the security cover of activists, cutting across the political spectrum, has been either downgraded or withdrawn. Security should be provided irrespective of political affiliations.
He urged the administration to review the decision. =
