Amarnath Sangharsh Samiti threatens agitation

via Mohit Kandhari | Jammu - dailypioneer.com published on February 11, 2009



Activists
of the Sri Amarnath Yatra Sangharsh Samiti (SAYSS) have decided to
revive its agitation in Jammu region from Friday in order to mount
pressure on the State Government to implement the agreement reached
between them and the four-member panel constituted by the Governor NN
Vohra to resolve the issue of Amarnath land row on August 31, 2008.

Leela
Karan Sharma, convener of the Samiti who remained in the forefront
during 63-day historic agitation in Jammu, on Wednesday said, “The
State Government has turned a deaf ear to the agreement reached between
the Government and the Samiti and have not provided any compensation to
the traders, transporters and others who suffered heavy losses during
the agitation.”

As per rough estimates, the State economy took a
severe beating as it suffered losses to the tune of Rs 5,000 crore
during the land row period.

“The State Government has not even
withdrawn criminal cases and those registered under Public Safety Act
against religious gurus despite promising the same.”

People
are angry with the attitude of the State Government who recently
withdrew cases registered against separatists but did not bother to
withdraw cases registered against religious heads, Sharma argued.

Giving
details of the programme finalised by the Samiti in its core group
meeting, Sharma said initially protest demonstrations and rallies would
be organised between February 13 and March 14 across Jammu region to
give a wake up call to the Government.

A massive protest rally
would be organised in Jammu on March 14 to rally more support against
the State Government, Sharma said. “If need be we are determined to
launch fresh agitation to get justice from the Government,” Leela Karan
Sharma said.
