SRINAGAR: National Conference on Tuesday lashed out at Mehbooba Mufti and her government for “crackdown” against government employees and the Employees Joint Action Committee (EJAC) leaders.
“This has yet again exposed Mehbooba’s intolerance and tyrannical state of mind,” The party provincial president said in a statement issued here.
He condemned the transfer of EJAC leaders, including its president Abdul Qayoom Wani and its general secretary Farooq Trali, to the jail. He also condemned official threats “being issued to employees to join their duties without any assurances for their safety and protection”.
“The crackdown on the EJAC leadership in extremely condemnable and belies all claims of ‘affection’ and ‘empathy’ that Mehbooba Mufti based her political ascent on. That the EJAC leaders have been shifted to the Central Jail indicates that the Mehbooba government is willing to break all limits of repression to survive widespread dissent against its tyranny and insensitivity,” he said.
