Ban of pre-paid mobile connections in JK `arbitrary`: PDP
Srinagar: Calling the Centre`s ban on
pre-paid mobile connections in Jammu and Kashmir "arbitrary",
PDP today demanded its reversal.
The "arbitrary" decision should be reversed early as it
"tarnishes our image and projects the entire people of the
state as unworthy of trust and some kind of a security
threat," its patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said at a public
meeting in Handwara, 80 km from here.
He said while the direct impact of the decision in terms
of loss of employment opportunities was considerable, it was
the psychological and political aspect of it which could claim
a heavier toll.
The banning of 38 lakh connections to prevent misuse by a
possible few hundred people was an index of the lack of trust
by the establishment in the citizens of the state, he alleged.
"No wonder our youth, whether players, students or
traders become victims of suspicion and highhandedness in
different parts of the country when the government itself
expresses doubts about our credentials as a people," he said.
The Centre imposed a ban on prepaid connections in the
state from November one on security reasons.
