Srinagar: Describing the “puppet” CM Mehbooba Mufti as “mannerless and arrogant”, Syedah Aasiyeh Andrabi said that the treatment meted out to journalists by Mehbooba Mufti during Thursday’s press conference was deplorable.
“The journalists present in the press conference exposed her hypocrisy and dual standard. That is why she misbehaved with them,” she said in a statement.
Andrabi said that journalists in Kashmir, despite facing all odds, have always maintained ethical standards and impartiality. “We have journalists of international repute in Kashmir. By misbehaving with them, this woman has only exposed the fact that she is mannerless and arrogant,” she said.
She said that Mehbooba must tender an unconditional apology for her misbehaviour.
