Namastey Trump while Delhi burns: Iltija Mufti
Srinagar, Feb 24: PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Iltija Mufti on Monday said the government was busy with the visit of US President Donald Trump to India, while Delhi was “burning” and 8 million Kashmiris deprived of their fundamental rights.
She said the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi is remembered only during visits by foreign dignitaries to Sabarmati Ashram.
“‘Hi Tea’ & Namastey Trump while Delhi burns & 8 million Kashmiris remain deprived of fundamental rights. Gandhi ji’s legacy remembered only at perfunctory visits to Sabarmati ashram by foreign dignitaries. His values long forgotten,” Iltija tweeted.
Iltija has been tweeting from her mother’s Twitter handle after the PDP president was taken into custody on August 05 last year following abrogation of Article 370.
Meanwhile, a Delhi Police head constable was killed and a deputy commissioner of police injured as clashes over the amended citizenship law broke out in northeast Delhi’s Jaffrabad and Maujpur on Monday, with protesters torching houses, shops and vehicles, and hurling stones at each other.
Violence between groups supporting and opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) was also reported in the Chandbagh and Bhajanpura areas of the national capital.
This is the second day of clashes in the city where Trump arrived on Monday evening.
