In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Narendra Modi-controlled regime has served a notice to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti, to vacate her bungalow in the high-security Gupkar area of Srinagar.
Mehbooba Mufti told media men in Srinagar that the notice to vacate the house was served to her a few days ago. This has not come as a surprise and is along the expected lines, she added.
She said the notice mentions that the bungalow is meant for the chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir which is not the case. ”This place was allotted to my father (Mufti Mohammad Sayeed) in December 2005, after he relinquished the chief minister’s office. So the grounds mentioned by the administration are not correct,” she said. Asked if she will challenge the notice in the court of law, the PDP chief said that she would consult her legal team. “I do not own a place where I can stay so I have to consult my legal team before taking a decision,” she added.—KMS
