New Delhi: “Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has exposed her proximity with separatists by warning that if her Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was split it would create more militants in the state.”
This was stated by Minister of Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, adding Mufti with her statement was “trying to give oxygen to terrorists”.
“Knowing or unknowingly she has only exposed her proximity to separatists,” the BJP leader said.
The PDP chief earlier said if New Delhi split her party it would create more Salahuddins and Yasin Maliks.
Reacting to Mufti’s statement, BJP’s central committee member G.V.l. Narasimha Rao said Mufti’s remarks were “very bizzare”.
Mufti, he said, “seems under tremendous pressure from her own party.
“Is she now equating her party with Hizbul Mujahiddin,” he asked.
Former Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister and senior state BJP leader Kavinder Gupta said: “It is very unfortuantae that she (Mufti) was ruling the state only a few days back as Chief Minister and now she threatens of a terror uprising.” (Agencies)
