NEW DELHI: BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday assailed former after J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on her remarks about creation of more ‘Salahuddins’, if there were attempts to split PDP and said she should solve her party’s internal conflicts before blaming the saffron party.
Calling Mufti’s remarks ‘unfortunate’ and one based on ‘lies’, Madhav denied allegations that the BJP was trying to create a rift within PDP.
“What Mehbooba ji said is unfortunate and based on lies. No one in Delhi is trying to break their party (PDP). Instead of solving their internal conflicts, they’re blaming Delhi and threatening in name of terrorism. As far as BJP is concerned, we aren’t trying to break any party,” Madhav was quoted as saying by a newsagency.
On the ‘Salahuddin’ threat, Madhav sternly said, “The Central government and security forces have the power to neutralise all the terrorists who are in the valley and those might turn to terrorism due to Mehbooba ji,” the BJP leader said.
Referring to the discontentment within PDP after four MLAs and an MLC spoke out against her leadership, Mufti on Friday warned New Delhi that any attempt to break the party would have a “very dangerous” outcome. PDP MLC Yasir Reshi, who called for “an end to the two family politics” in Kashmir, was Thursday removed as the PDP’s Bandipore district president.
