Sehrai condemns imposing of toll tax at toll plaza Sangam

Srinagar, May 08 (KNO) : Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai Wednesday condemned imposing toll tax at newly established toll plaza in South Kashmir Sangam area of JK highway.

In a statement issued to KNO, he said this move is yet another economical suppression on Kashmiris aimed to choke and cripple kashmiri people on economical front.

Sehrai said it is an anti-people measure aimed to make the people of Kashmir struggle economically and beg even for travel. “Such a move will choke the economy of Kashmir and trigger crisis in the valley,” he added.

He asked the government to withdraw the inhuman ban on public movement on the highway that is causing tremendous hardships for all segments of Kashmiri people and also revoke this toll Tax charging order on locals instead on outsiders and allow freedom of travel.

Sehrai reacting on recently concluded parliamentary elections where more than 90% Kashmiris rejected the polls and gave a stern message to GOI and international community through a non-violent way that they are only interested in the final resolution of Kashmir issue and time has come to address it in its historical background, where people of Kashmir should be allowed to decide their political fate democratically as per their wishes and aspirations.

“We believe that the election is in no way going to have an effect on the political resolutions of Kashmir,” he said.(KNO)
