Leaders of Left parties Sitaram Yechury and D Raja will visit Srinagar on Friday “to meet their party colleagues” in Kashmir.

On Thursday, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury and CPI general secretary D Raja separately wrote to J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik, informing him of their visit to the state and saying they hoped the “administration will not create any hurdles”.

“The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has an active unit in the state of Jammu & Kashmir and it had a MLA, Mohd Yusuf Tarigami in the dissolved J&K assembly. As the general secretary of a national party, I wish to visit Mohd Yusuf Tarigami (who I was informed, is not keeping good health) and other members of my party. I propose to reach Srinagar on the 9th (August) morning to meet them. I hope the administration will not create any hurdles in discharging my responsibilities as a leader of my party,” Yechury wrote in his letter.

His letter comes hours after Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad was stopped at the Srinagar airport and sent back. He was stopped by the administration and put on a return flight later in the afternoon.

Similarly, CPI leader Raja also wrote to Malik that he has to meet his party leaders in the state. “As the General Secretary of Communist Party of India, I wish to visit Srinagar to meet my party members and my party leaders. I propose to reach Srinagar on August 9, 2019 morning to meet them. I hope that the administration will allow me to discharge my responsibilities as the General Secretary of my Party to reach out to my party people,” wrote Raja.
