Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday slammed the BJP-led Indian government for rushing additional companies of paramilitary Central Reserve Police force (CRPF) for deployment in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir saying the crisis needs a political and not a military solution.

Following the recent surge in killings, New Delhi has reportedly sent 55 additional companies of CRPF for deployment in IIOJK over the past one month.

Reacting to the deployment of more CRPF personnel, Mehbooba tweeted; “Even after converting J&K into a military garrison, additional troops are being brought to Kashmir.

Whatever little breathing space people have here is being choked and taken overall under the pretext of security. The crisis in J&K needs a political & not a military solution”, she added.—KMS
