Jammu: Shiv Sena (Hindustan) on Friday alleged that the present unrest in the Kashmir valley was a ploy to disrupt the peaceful conduct of annual Amarnath yatra.
"The unrest in the Kashmir valley is a ploy of anti- national elements to disturb the peaceful conduct of the annual Amarnath Yatra," President of Shiv Sena (Hindustan) Rakesh Kesari said addressing a demonstration during which an effigy of the BJP-PDP government was also burnt here.
He said Jammu and Kashmir government should take strict action against the protestors who were trying to disrupt the peaceful conduct of the Yatra.
"Every year, the anti-national elements disturb the situation in Kashmir during the yatra season, such people should be identified and booked," he said.
Kesari also demanded security for the Jammu-based truckers who ply on Jammu-Srinagar national highway to ferry goods to the Kashmir valley.
He alleged the protestors were deliberately targeting the vehicles having Jammu number.
"Protesters are smashing windshields of the Jammu-based vehicles. The drivers are beaten and attacked. The government should provide security to the drivers if they want the uninterrupted supply goods to Kashmir," he said.
