Sitaram Yechury stopped at Srinagar Airport, sent back to Delhi

Politicians from opposition parties have been engaging in extremely disturbing rhetoric which could imperil a sensitive situation as Jammu & Kashmir slowly returns to normalcy.

General Secretary of the CPI(M), Sitaram Yechury, who had gone to Srinagar to visit the members of his party there is being sent back to Delhi. Yesterday, Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Gulam Ahmed Mir were detained at the Srinagar airport before they were sent back to Delhi as well.

Yechury had said yesterday that he would go to Srinagar to meet CPI(M) workers and the lone MLA the party had in the erstwhile state assembly.
