Srinagar, May 06, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, people from all walks of life joined a protest march in Srinagar on Monday against state suppression and failures of the authorities to provide basic facilities to the people. Holding banners and placards and chanting slogans protesters started the march from Magarmal Bagh and proceeded towards civil secretariat.
