Srinagar, Oct 6 (UNI) Urging the people to resume normal activities from tomorrow if the curfew restrictions are lifted, the Coordination Committee (CC) spearheading the present agitation in the Kashmir valley, is meeting on October 8 to discuss the future course of action.
A spokesman of the CC, an alliance of both the factions of the Hurriyat Conference (HC), traders, lawyers and other separatist organisations, said ''we appeal to the people to resume the normal business and other activities from tomorrow if the curfew is lifted by the authorities.'' He said the members of the CC are meeting on October 8 to chalk out the future strategy.
People were urged not to heed the rumours and follow only CC programmes, he added.
He said the future programme of the CC would be made public after the members meet.
The spokesman claimed that despite curfew restrictions, people in different areas staged peaceful demonstrations.
He said the call for 'Lal Chowk chalo' was given as on this very place first Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had promised the people of the Jammu and Kashmir that they would be given the right to choose their destination.
''We just want the world to know that we are demanding what we were promised by the first Prime Minister,'' he said.
However, he said, unfortunately the authorities imposed curfew and did not allow them to hold this peaceful rally.
He also condemned the house-arrest of senior Hurriyat leaders, including Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and others, besides detaining more than 100 senior and other leaders.
