According to Kashmir Media Service, the leadership in a joint statement issued in Srinagar said, "It is a best precedence for people in south Kashmir; they too should stay away from this (election) drama and follow the people of central Kashmir." Hailing people for their exemplary commitment towards the movement, the leaders said complete boycott and shutdown vindicates that they outright rejected the puppets and unjustified and illegal occupation. "We won't allow these henchmen to bargain against the sacred blood of these martyrs." "A new trend has set in and people, particularly youth are enough mature to differentiate between well-wishers and those favoring Indian authorities. Now it is quite encouraging that people of Kashmir are conveying a message that India continues its occupation through its military might only. Their every deceit and game has failed and they have lost battle," the statement added. The leadership asked pro-Indian politicians to apologize for their wrong doings and join the freedom camp against this brutal occupation. "It is the best opportunity for them to join with us or they won't find even a burial place here and will meet the same fate as that of Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq," the statement read. "After a fair calculation of total electorate in parliamentary segment, the outcome is even less than two percent, thus deficient of any credibility," the statement said. The leadership expressed deep sorrow over the killing of youth and said, "It is a well thought-out plan of genocide and authorities resorted to indiscriminate firing to make this election drama a success". "We pay our heartfelt tributes to our martyrs and shutdown calls serve a purpose to show our resentment against these brutal killings," the statement said. It also appealed people to offer condolences with the bereaved families. The leadership urged international community to take cognizance of the killings and said that continuous silence maintained by the world community was rather disheartening. "Their tall claims about these violations prove useless, as no workable steps are being taken to check these violations," said the statement. –APP
