India has taken ties to nadir, says Mehbooba Mufti

Srinagar: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that India’s response to the telephonic conversation between Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq had reduced ties between the two countries to the lowest level. “Terming a phone call between Pakistani FM & Mirwaiz Umar Farooq sahab as anti-India has reduced ties to an unbelievable nadir,” Mehbooba said in a series of tweets. “A foreign policy dictated by the compulsions of electoral politics is shockingly pathetic,” the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir added. Referring to past engagements between Pakistani officials and Hurriyat leaders in the state, Mehbooba said it was in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led NDA regime that meetings between separatists and Pakistani officials were facilitated. —PTI
