Protest held in Anantnag over J-K admin’s decision to evict people from state land


A protest on Thursday was held in the Larnoo-Kokernag area in Anantnag district against the Jammu and Kashmir administration’s decision to evict people from the state land.

It was the first major protest against the J-K governor administration’s order issued on January 4 asking all illegal occupants of the state land to leave the places within seven days or face action.

The protestors assembled at Bidhard in Larnoo and raised slogans against the administration for issuing eviction notices to them, officials said.
