Outsiders holding sway on our lands, jobs and resources: Mehbooba


The kinds of decrees issued from Delhi after the 5th August 2019 is pointer to the fact that our land, employment, resources and all things are put on a sale, said People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Mehbooba Mufti.

On the side-line of a function at her Gupkar residence, Mufti hinted that the outsiders have been holding sway on the lands, jobs and resources here and said, New Delhi “would wipe out our existence if we would not act together, resist and condemn such things.”

Replying to a reporter’s query regarding the jailing of youth, PDP Chief said she had apprised the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha about the matter during a recent meeting and told him that the situation in Kashmir would not change if such things are not stopped immediately.

While pointing out the restrictions being put on her movement, she said that regional parties now need to find a space in the prevailing atmosphere to defeat the India’s sinister designs. “New Delhi is afraid of political activities and they have left no stone unturned to defame us,” she said.

The situation which has been created by BJP in Kashmir has forced the youth to join militancy, she said, adding that the bloodshed and repression in Kashmir seem to be used by BJP to secure votes in India but such policy would not yield anything.

“Due to the atmosphere that the BJP has created in Kashmir, more and more youth are picking up guns, all because of anger which is everywhere,” she said.

She raised questions over summoning of NC president Dr Farooq Abdullah by Enforcement Directorate. “There is no rocket science needed to understand why Dr. Farooq was called up by ED. If New Delhi is currently afraid of anything, it is the Gupkar Alliance. They know that if the alliance remains together, then their sinister plans with regard to J&K will be thwarted,” she added.—KMS
