By KMSThursday – January 14, 2021
According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS), tension gripped Talwara area of Reasi district after locals strongly protested against the Indian railway personnel (IRP) at Talwara subsidiary training centre (STC) who were trying to capture their land illegally.
The angry locals assembled at the main road, burnt tyres and blocked the vehicular movement.
The protesters shouted slogans against IRP posted at Talwara STC.
A brick-batting and clash like situation took place when some IRP personnel hurled stones towards the protesting locals, who retaliated in response.
Several persons were injured in the incident.
The students of government post graduate degree college Bhaderwah and government degree college Doda held protests demanding postponement of the examinations scheduled from January 22, 2021.
The students warned to intensify their protest if their demands were not fulfilled.
The Jammu and Kashmir Youth Congress (JKYC) staged a demonstration in front of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) office in Jammu by banging utensils to wake the Modi-led government in India which is turning a blind eye to the deaths of agitating farmers who have been protesting against the farm laws for more than two months now.
The protestors raised slogans like ‘Kisaan Virodhi, Narendra Modi!’ and ‘Kisaan Ekta Zindabad!’.
The protestors said the BJP is sleeping over the death of at least 57 farmers who sacrificed their lives in the protests going on at multiple borders of New Delhi for the past two and a half months.
The protests were also held in different areas of the occupied territory against the non-provision of basic facilities including electricity and water supply by the occupation authorities in the harsh weather.
