Security of 400 politicians restored in Jammu & Kashmir
April 9, 2019
Security for over 400 politicians in Jammu and Kashmir has been restored. It was restored on after high level meeting at the centre. After the Pulwama attack on 14 February, security for at least 900 politicians was cancelled in J&K which is currently under Governor's rule. With Lok Sabha elections round the corner, politicians stated that they are unable to go for campaigns due to security reasons. They even alleged that this is affecting the image of their parties in terrorist hit Jammu and Kashmir.
This even sparked outrage amongst political parties. Many people even took to social media to express their concern over many security personals wasting their time and efforts for security of politicians.
