"Geelani was not allowed by police to leave his Hyderpora residence on Wednesday morning for Tral town where he was to address a public meeting," it said in a statement.
        
Condemning the move, the Hurriyat said "this tantamounts to government's admission that it has failed to fight Geelani politically."
       
This is the second time in a week that the chairman of the hardline Hurriyat Conference was barred from visiting Tral.
        
On November 28, his proposed public meeting in Tral was cancelled after he was placed under house arrest. However, he was allowed to hold a rally on December one in Kulgam town in south Kashmir.
    
The Hurriyat hawk, who has launched a poll boycott campaign, is planning to hold a rally in Srinagar on December 8.
