PDP chief and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has strongly objected to large-scale detentions in Kashmir in connection with the killings of minority people. He has warned the Center and the Jammu and Kashmir administration that there will be dire consequences if innocent people are arrested and put in jails. The situation in Kashmir will deteriorate to such a degree that it cannot be handled. The killings have been caused by security failures, so those who fail to protect minorities must be held accountable.
The matter of Mehbooba Mufti, who reached Bhaderwah on Tuesday, worsened again. Talking to reporters, he said that the administration has created a storm in Kashmir. Whoever gets it is being caught and thrown in jail. Putting innocent people in jail like in jail will have dire consequences. Why does the government not consider it a security lapse, he said. Punish those responsible for the security lapses responsible for the killings of people belonging to the minority community. Please get the matter investigated. Getting caught is wrong. Accountability should be fixed. Seven hundred to one thousand people have been detained.
Taking a jibe at the ministers’ visit, Mehbooba said that some were horse riding and some were roaming in Gulmarg and Pahalgam. Full security arrangements were made during the visit of the ministers. During this, the terrorists killed him. This is the failure of the government. On the question of National Conference leaders joining BJP, Mehbooba said that we are troubled since 2018. The people of my party have been taken. My worker is standing with me. This work has now started in the National Conference. This is the job of BJP. BJP cannot think of anything except elections.
The issue of Jammu and Kashmir can be resolved only through dialogue. On the raids by NIA, CBI and ED, Mehbooba said that no one has any objection if these institutions work on principles. If BJP takes help of these agencies then it is wrong to include them in the party. It seems that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are being avenged. Mehbooba just said about the CBI raid on Basir Ahmed Khan’s house – I cannot say anything. Till yesterday he was advisor to the Lieutenant Governor.
