The police detained dozens of Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Youth Congress (JKPYC) members who were holding a protest against the NDA government on Wednesday, in Jammu.
JKPYC said that alienation among young generation is increasing due to the NDA government’s policies.
Led by JKPYC chief Pranav Shagotra, over 200 activists on Wednesday took out a procession against BJP-led NDA government for its “failure on all fronts”.
As soon as the PYC activists marched towards Dogra Chowk from the Press Club area, they were stopped by the police.
Police detained dozens of supporters and later let them off.
Shagotra said the NDA government had promised to solve problems of border residents by providing them shelter at alternative places but the same promise was never fulfilled.
He also expressed concern over ceasefire violations across the border in the last two years and said that Modi government has failed to deal with the situation in a befitting manner.
“In a democratic system like ours, BJP-led NDA government is trying to gag dissent voice by adopting oppressive means,” he said.
