AAP on hunger strike in Srinagar to demand order sparing poor from anti-encroachment drive


The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday said it is on hunger strike here to demand a formal order from the Jammu and Kashmir administration to spare poor residents and shopkeepers from the ongoing anti-encroachment drive.

“Our vice-president Nazir Ahmad Ittoo started the hunger strike last night but due to security reasons, we were not allowed to sit at the Press Colony. We had to shift to our office,” AAP youth leader Mudasir Hassan said.

“The hunger strike will continue till a formal order is issued by the administration,” he added.
