Stuck nearby Jamia Masjid, New Delhi, several Kashmiris warned that if authorities fail to take any concrete measure for their return to the Valley, they will hit the roads in the national capital along with their families.

On Thursday, they said since 21-day lockdown was enforced across the country, they have been stuck inside without food, water, and other essential commodities.

Comprising of students and other laborers, the group said that they are in complete distress as authorities from either the Union Terriroty or Centre are responding to their pleas, reported KNS. “Despite repeated efforts to contact officials in Kashmir and in New Delhi, nobody bothered to reply us. We are about to die. We have nothing to feed,” they said.

“We will hit roads now; we have to die — either by staying inside or coming out. Our families in Kashmir are in pain,” they said. “We have no option to protest against the apathetic outlook of government.”

Meanwhile, several parents whose chidlren are stuck in Bangladesh due to the lockdown enforced in the entire country appealed authorities to bring students back to their families.

They said that from the last one month, the concerned families are crying and wailing but authorities aren’t uttering a single word on their return. They also said there are almost 400 Kashmiri students, who are still far away from their families amid uncertain situation and it has left the parents to suffer. (KNS)
