J&K councillors refuse their jobs

The Milli Gazette Online

Srinagar: The grassroots democracy in Kashmir got its first setback, with some newly elected councillors resigning and some others staying in the city’s hotels fearing attack of militants. In Srinagar, some elected councillors of the National Conference took refuge in fortified Nawai Subh Complex, the party’s head quarters and two councillors of the Peoples Democratic Party Ghulam Mohidin Bhat and Mushtaq Ahmad Bhat announced their resignation during a Friday congregation in the second week of February. 

The moves according to sources are an outcome of the killing of two councillors in Srinagar and Beerwah. Fayaz Ahmad Bhat, an elected councillor, who had taken refuge in a hotel said that they were soft targets and anybody could kill them and that they were receiving threats but the government had not provided any security to them. NC president Omar Abdullah threatened en masse resignation of his councillors in case their security was not ensured.
