    YRS blocks road in support of demand for holiday on birth anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh

    Some activists of the Yuva Rajput Sabha (YRS) on Friday staged a demonstration and blocked the Jammu-Pathankot national highway to press their demand for declaring a holiday on the birth anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh, the last Dogra ruler of Jammu and Kashmir, on September 23. YRS leaders said they had been making the demand for the last 10 years but the administration was yet to fulfil it. They withdrew the road blockade after about half-an-hour.

"We do not know the fate of the committee formed by the government on our demand for a public holiday as a tribute to our great Maharaja who was the one who made J&K the crown of India by signing the instrument of accession," the organisation's leader said.

    Russia's attack on a Ukrainian train station that killed more than 20 people this week is the latest in a series of strikes on the country's railway system that some international legal scholars say may be war crimes.
