PDP rallies demanding revocation of SAC order on J-K bank

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday took out a protest rally demanding the revocation of the recent government order on J&K Bank.

Scores of PDP leaders and activists led by former minister, Naeem Akhtar, took out a protest rally from the party headquarters and marched towards the Press Enclave in Srinagar, summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.

Party’s official Twitter handle also posted a photo saying that it is an assault on the economy of the state.

However, a police party intercepted them at Polo View and prevented them from marching ahead. The protesters were chanting slogans like ‘JK bank hamara hai’ (JK bank belongs to us), and ‘roll back roll back SAC decision roll back’.

“Turning J&K Bank into a PSU is an assault on the economy of Jammu and Kashmir. We want to tell governor Sahab to revoke it,” said Akhtar while talking to reporters. “We won’t relent (until the order is revoked).”
