Sargodha (Staff Reporter) Rickshaw Transport Drivers Union protested against the slip mafia and traffic police at 49 Tel. The protestors demanded that extortion by the Cantonment Board and Corporation contractors should be stopped, the traffic police should stop challenging poor rickshaw drivers to meet their quota, and the district administration should take notice to stop the hooligans.
Nah Gaya Toor Kasha drivers will not be forced to go on strike across the city, President of Rickshaw Transport Union Malik Latif Awan expressed these thoughts while addressing a meeting held on behalf of Cantt President Jimmy Shah at 49 Tel. He said that the rickshaw driver works hard for the livelihood of the children throughout the day, while the Corporation and the Kent Board gave a certificate of hooliganism and extortion to a few elements in order to take money from the mouth of the worker.
It goes, Na-Rickshaw Transport Union will not tolerate anymore the approval of their rights and legitimate demands. Very soon, the delegation of Kisha Union will also meet with IG Punjab Police. The district administration will immediately take notice and take legal action against such elements. If not, the rickshaw drivers will be forced to protest on all the roads of the city, for which the administration will be responsible.

General Secretary Malik Tariq Masood Awan said that the rickshaw drivers want to maintain law and order in the city, but day by day injustice, rudeness and fights with the rickshaw drivers have become the norm, which will not be tolerated anymore. The police officers and the Corporation Cantt administration played their part in this and made it possible to fulfill the legitimate demands of the rickshaw drivers. The drivers also staged a peaceful protest at 49 tail-rickshaw stands for their demands.
Business centers, educational institutes, and offices closed, transport suspended, Modi government violating human rights: Detained Hurriyat leadership
Srinagar (APP, Monitoring Desk) A complete strike was held against the occupation of lands under the black law, eviction of permanent citizens, and resettlement of Hindus, and controversial constituencies in occupied Kashmir by the Modi government. According to Kashmir Media Service, a complete shutter down strike was conducted in Occupied Kashmir on the appeal of Hurriyat parties. Markets, educational institutions, and offices were closed, the transport was suspended while roads and streets remained deserted.
Despite the step-by-step deployment of Indian soldiers and police personnel, the Modi government could not open the market from the hawkers, nor did the people bow down to these hideous tactics. Ever since the Modi government abolished the special status of Kashmir and divided it as a federal territory, there is a nefarious conspiracy to reduce the Muslim majority. Under this conspiracy, permanent citizens are being evicted from their lands and Hindu families are being brought from India.
Businesses and jobs have been closed to Kashmiris. Homes of Kashmiris are being demolished and Kashmiri leaders who raised their voices against this oppression are being arrested and imprisoned in dangerous Indian jails, on which the Hurriyat organizations called for a complete strike. On the other hand, former Chief Minister of Occupied Kashmir Farooq Abdullah said, “Does the Modi government think we are fools?”
These constituencies are a conspiracy to declare Kashmir as an Indian state. Illegally detained Chairman of All-Party Hurriyat Conference Musarat Alam Butt and senior Hurriyat leader Shabbir Ahmed Shah have expressed their regret in messages released from Tihar Jail in New Delhi that the Modi government in the name of the anti-encroachment campaign in the occupied territory.
There is a serious violation of human rights by evicting Kashmiris from their lands and properties. On the other hand, Amnesty International and the Committee to Protect Journalists criticized India for suppressing the freedom of the press, and massive anti-India protests were held in Jammu against the eviction and demolition campaign.
