SRINAGAR – Posters have appeared in Srinagar and adjoining areas, appealing people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K) to observe complete shutdown against the expected visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the territory this week.

The posters reading, “Kashmiris totally reject Indian Prime Minister’s visit” have been pasted on poles and streets of Srinagar city and adjoining areas.

The visit is an attempt by Narendra Modi to portray a wrong impression of normalcy in the territory, the Kashmir Media Service reports.

Modi is expected to visit the occupied territory any time after Thursday.
