New Delhi: PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti was prevented by the police from taking out a march to the Parliament Wednesday to object against an anti-encroachment drive going on Jammu and Kashmir.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba and scores of PDP workers had planned to march from the Railway Bhawan to Parliament in the national capital, where she wanted make the opposition parties aware of the “bulldozer policy” of J&K administration.

However, police detained Mehbooba and took her and her party workers to Jantar Mantar from where the protesters dispersed.

“We had come to inform the public, opposition parties and members of the ruling BJP about the misery faced by the public at large in Jammu and Kashmir.

“If we can’t go to Parliament, I wonder where we should go then. Does the government want us to get our grievances redressed at the United Nations,” Mehbooba asked.

There is no rule of law that can be seen in Jammu and Kashmir and “we came all the way to Delhi to speak our hearts out. But it seems that here also the voice of the general public is muzzled,” she said.
