Srinagar, Oct 3: The Joint resistance leadership (JRL), comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani,  Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik,  on Wednesday appealed for a shutdown in Kashmir on October 8 to protest against the commencement of municipal and panchayat elections in the state.

“People should observe a complete shutdown across Jammu and Kashmir on 8th October to protest the commencement of the ULB and Panchayat elections being foisted upon them,” the leaders said in a statement.

“People should observe subsequent protest shutdown in their own respective areas as per the poll schedule on 10th, 13th and 16th October 2018 respectively and show their complete disassociation and resentment against it,” the statement added.
