Bajrang Dal wants amnesty for held Jammu youth
Jammu: Bajrang Dal Monday accused the Jammu
and Kashmir government of adopting double standards, saying it had announced amnesty to stonepelters in the Valley while
ignoring those arrested during the 2008 Amarnath land row.
"We are demanding that government should release 196
arrested youth and withdraw cases against them registered
during the Amarnath land row in 2008," Bajrang Dal state
coordinator Rakesh Sharma said here today.
"There cannot be two set of rules from Kashmir and Jammu
youth involved in 2008 and 2010 rows," Sharma, who led the
protest demonstration against the government for announcement
of general amnesty for stonepelters, said.
Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has announced general
amnesty scheme for youth involved in over 1,200 cases of
stonepelting in the Valley during the last year`s summer
