DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) party announced on Monday that it will protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on Thursday (22 August) against the government’s decision to scrap Article 370.

According to the statement given by DMK MP T R Baalu, it is expected that the protest will be attended by DMK MPs and other political leaders of Congress, CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist), CPI (Communist Party of India), TMC (Trinamool Congress) and the India Union Muslim League (IUML). AIADMK is also supporting the decision of DMK to hold the protest.

T R Baalu said that he wants all like-minded parties to join them in the protest. DMK party is demanding the release of leaders who have been detained in the valley. Presently, Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah have been put under house arrest for almost 2 weeks now. In a related incident, retired IAS officer Shah Faesal has been detained too.

The DMK leader is also in touch with the Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and other leaders. DMK leader MK Stalin had condemned the Union government’s decision to alter the political situation of Jammu and Kashmir. Stalin called it a ‘murder of democracy’. He further called the detention of family members of political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir is “unacceptable and unconscionable”.

CPI general secretary D Raja said that they will be part of the protest at Jantar Mantar and demand that those detained in Jammu and Kashmir must be immediately released.

Centre has abrogated the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and ordered the bifurcation of valley state into 2 Union Territories. Owing to the ruling party’s decision, many opponents are not happy with it. They have alleged that the government has acted in a unilateral manner and not consulted stakeholders in the process.
