VHP, Bajrang Dal call for Jammu Bandh tomorrow over AIIMS issue



Indian Right-wing groups Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal have come-out in support of “Jammu bandh” tomorrow against BJP-PDP coalition government’s “discriminatory” attitude. Yesterday, Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (JCCI) had called for a bandh in Jammu on April, 24th against the shifting of proposed All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) from Jammu to Kashmir.

The VHP has called for a complete bandh in the district tomorrow in protest against the shifting of AIIMS campus from Jammu to Srinagar, senior vice president of the organisation’s J&K unit Rajesh Gupta, PTI reported.

The opposition parties National Conference (NC) and Congress have also extended their support to Jammu bandh call on April 24 given by Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party and JCCI.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
