SRINAGAR : PDP chief and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti launched a veilded attack at the Centre saying leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Atal Bihari Vajpayee had a vision for Jammu and Kashmir but this government creates a divide between Hindus and Muslims.
“Those in Delhi are using J&K as a laboratory and are experimenting here. Leaders like, Nehru, Vajpayee had vision for J&K but this govt creates a divide between Hindu and Muslims. Sardars are now Khalistani, we are Pakistani, only BJP is Hindustani..” said Mehbooba Mufti.
Speaking on the delimitation exercise, Mufti said, “…this exercise is being done haphazardly. They are only changing names (naming schools after martyrs) but children will not get employment by changing names. They (Centre) talk about Taliban, Afghanistan but not about farmers, unemployment.
On Sunday, Mehbooba accused the BJP of playing politics over the issues of Taliban, Afghanistan and Pakistan to garner votes alleging that the seven-year-rule of the saffron party has brought miseries to the people of the country and left Jammu and Kashmir “destroyed”.
