Srinagar : Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said the BJP-led central government would end up creating more militants like Syed Salahuddin and Yasin Malik if her party was split to form government in the state.
“If Delhi tries to dismiss the voting rights of people like 1987, if it tries to create divisions & interfere like that then I think just like a Salahuddin and a Yasin Malik were born in 1987…if it tries to break PDP like that then outcomes will be dangerous,” said Mehbooba while talking to reporters at the martyrs’ graveyard in Srinagar.
Soon after the PDP-BJP coalition ended, Mehbooba warned the BJP that any attempt to engineer defections in her party “would erode the trust of the Kashmiris in Indian democracy”.
“If Delhi intervenes and breaks our party, and makes Sajad Lone or whosoever as the Chief Minister, it will erode the trust of the Kashmiris in Indian democracy. Any intervention from Delhi will be taken seriously,” the PDP chief had said.
