SHOPIAN, Jan 17: Shopian Working Journalists' Association (SWJA) on Monday deplored the government's decision to cancel the allotment of the premises to Kashmir Press Club (KPC).
In a statement issued here, a spokesperson of the association said that the dramatic events which took place in past two days suggest that what the authorities had up their sleeve.
The association billed the move as authoritarian and another attempt to stifle the voice of journalists.
"The government has been since long using strong-arm tactics to browbeat the journalists into submission", said the spokesperson.
Deploring the move, the association has appealed to the government to walk back its decision and allow the free and fair elections of the Club.
