The National Conference on Friday claimed that their president Farooq Abdullah is not being allowed to leave his residence and visit the Hazratbal Shrine in Srinagar to offer prayers. The party tweeted that the J&K administration has blocked his residence and called it an infringement on the right to pray. PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti too tweeted her condemnation and said that preventing Abdullah from offering prayers on the occasion of Milad Un Nabi exposes the Centre's deep paranoia. On Thursday, Mehbooba was stopped from meeting PDP workers who had been detained for protesting against the new land laws and had been asked to turn back mid-way.
The People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration which is headed by Farooq Abdullah in a statement called the alleged action by the J&K administration a "new low in curtailment of fundamental rights" of people of J&K.
