Shutdown in support of Article 35-A hits life in Valley

Srinagar, Feb 13 (IANS) Normal life was adversely affected in Srinagar city and other parts of the Kashmir Valley on Wednesday by a shutdown called by separatists in support of Article 35-A of the Constitution.

A petition seeking abrogation of Article 35-A is being heard by the Supreme Court. The article gives powers to the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly to define residents of the state and their privileges.

The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), the separatist conglomerate headed by Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, called a two-day strike to highlight people's support of the people for the article.

 

Shops and other businesses remained closed in the Valley while public transport went off the roads. Only private vehicles moved at many places.
