Without making any mention of the recent UP violence after the farmers were killed at Lakhimpur Kheri, Mehbooba Mufti in series of tweets have claimed that the government is using iron fist against its own people and said that it has become a preferred approach of the government to silence the voices of dissent.
She has even compared the trampling of human rights and other forms of dignified protests with the recent incursions of the Chinese army and said that while the government is silencing its own people, they were welcoming the Chinese army on the borders.
According to the news agencies quoting Mehbooba Mufti and her tweets they have said in their news reports on Monday as follows.
In an apparent reference to the violence in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti alleged on Monday that imposing Section 144 wherever human rights and dignity have trampled upon has emerged as the Centre’s preferred approach.
She claimed that the government uses an iron fist against its own people but welcomes Chinese troops with open arms.
Her remarks came after at least eight people were killed as violence erupted in Lakhimpur Kheri on Sunday.
Multiple opposition leaders tried to make their way to the Uttar Pradesh district through the night but were prevented from doing so.
“Applying Section 144 wherever human rights & dignity is trampled has emerged as GOIs preferred approach. This government shows no hesitation in using an iron fist with its own people but welcomes Chinese troops with open arms,” the PDP chief wrote on Twitter.
“One can’t even compare the oppression unleashed in J&K since 2019 but the common denominators are obvious. What started in J&K was sadly met with an air of indifference & has now engulfed the entire country. When will we speak up?” she asked.
