By name-changing, history being distorted: Mehbooba
Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that renaming of places of historical importance was an attempt to divert attention from real issues confronting the country.
“At a time when our country is witnessing rising agrarian distress and unemployment, crores still live without a roof on their head . Name changing seems to be a mere gimmick to deflect attention from the real issues,” tweeted Mehbooba.
“Fail to understand what purpose would it achieve? Will it help in alleviating poverty or addressing inflation? Instead attempts are being made to distort history. 2/2,” she said in another tweet.
