In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has strongly condemned India's military might and iron fist policy to suppress the Kashmiris' just struggle, aimed at securing their inalienable right to self-determination.

The APHC, at a meeting of Advisory Council in Srinagar with its General Secretary, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi in chair, deliberated upon the prevailing grim situation in the occupied territory. The meeting termed the Kashmir dispute as a purely political issue, which needs to be resolved through peaceful political means.

The meeting extended full support to the election boycott call for the upcoming Panchayat and Municipal elections given by the Joint Resistance Leadership and described it quite mandatory for the success of the freedom struggle.
