The People's Democratic Party in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday said its leaders and workers will join the march to Muzaffarabad in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir on Monday.
"The PDP has decided to join the march to Muzaffarabad on Monday, the call for which has been given by fruit growers association," party president Mehbooba Mufti said here.
Mufti said party workers and sympathisers led by senior leader Abdul Aziz Zargar and Mohammad Dilawar Mir will constitute a part of the main convoy.
She said, "the march should be seen as the assertion of Kashmir's inalienable right to trade and travel without restrictions."
The PDP president also demanded that the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road be opened for goods traffic.
The Hurriyat Conference as well as other separatist outfits have announced that they would march to Muzaffarabad tomorrow to "counter the economic blockade" of the valley.
The PDP president said opening up of the road between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad along with other links like Suchetgarh-Sialkote, Rawakot-Poonch and Kargil-Skardu offered a "win-win" opportunity to India, Pakistan and the people of the state.
