Food security issue: Kashmiri people urge India to open border outlets with Pakistan

“If India is unable to provide even 400 grams of ration a day (as per WHO) then let them open the border and allow us to fetch rice from across the border,”

Protest against the recently-imposed National Food Security Act (NFSA) in Indian administered Kashmir goes on as residents of northern Baramulla district demanded for opening of a border outlet with Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

Recently formed Coodination Committee Baramulla—which comprises trader’s federation, Gurdwara Prabandhak Committtee and Auqaf committee—has called the protests against the NFSA in the whole district.

“If India is unable to provide even 400 grams of ration a day (as per WHO) then let them open the border and allow us to fetch rice from across the border,” demanded the protesters.

The controversial NFSA, which was imposed by Indian government in the state on Feb 15, has sparked protests across the length and breadth of the state with protesters calling for its revocation.
