Srinagar: Opposition Peoples Democratic
Party in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday held a demonstration here,
demanding revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act and
Public Safety Act from the state.

Led by former state ministers Tariq Hameed Qarra and
Mohammad Dilawar Mir, over 100 PDP workers took out a rally
from the party headquarters at Polo View and marched towards
Lal Chowk.

However, police intercepted the rally at some distance
from the PDP office and urged the protesters to disperse.

The PDP workers then staged a brief sit-in at Polo
View crossing.

Addressing the workers, Qarra demanded that Acts like
AFSPA and PSA should be revoked and all under-age detenus be
released immediately.

The former finance minister also accused the ruling
National Conference-Congress coalition of rampant corruption.

The protest was part of PDP`s state-wide programme under
which it had planned to hold rallies at all zonal headquarters
of the state.
