Srinagar: Azadi slogans were raised by women participants of a function at SKICC, Srinagar on Tuesday after throwing furniture and bottles towards the dice leaving the chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and organizers surprised.
Sources said that Rural Development Department had organized a function at SKICC and a number of people were invited to attend including women.
“The trouble started very early at the gate of SKICC where women participants objected to enter alleging they had been brought to SKICC deceitfully,” witnesses said.
They said that the organizers somehow managed the situation and brought them in.
Sources said that amidst anger of the women participants as the chief minister appeared in the lawns of SKICC after delivering lecture inside, the angry participants started raising azadi slogans and threw whatever they had including chairs, water bottles and other furniture.
“We had been called for some UMEED function and not told that Mehbooba will be here,” said an angry lady who was among hundreds of women who left the venue raising slogans “Hum Kya Chahtay Azadi”.
