All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has expressed serious concern after a group of locals from Woukho Kakapora of Pulwama district staged a protest at the press enclave against the allotment of their agricultural land for establishment of CRPF Camp in the area.
In a statement, APHC said that authorities are set to take over a large tract of agricultural land in Woukho village of Pulwama district for setting up a big CRPF establishment. “This has put their livelihood in great peril which the locals are resenting,”
APHC said that Kashmir being the world’s most militarised zone , already thousands of acres of land are in military possession, which has dispossessed the locals and people of Kashmir of the use of their natural resource, “By taking over peoples land and snatching their livelihood, through authoritarian orders, those in power are only adding to peoples woes, and implementing the agenda of demographic change.” The communique read.
APHC in the statement further asked the authorities to revoke the anti people order of transfer of agricultural land for CRPF camp, and spare the locals the mental agony it is causing them.
