He said the meeting was chaired by NC provincial secretary, Kashmir, Showkat Ahmad. During the meeting, Ahmad also took stock of the prevailing situation in the region, the spokesperson added.
The party passed two resolutions demanding immediate release of all detained civil society members and political leaders, including former chief ministers Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah, and condemning passage of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, he said.
