PDP condemns PSA extension of Naeem Akhtar
Jammu, May 8: Condemning the state administration move to extend the detention of former minister Naeem Akhtar under Public Safety Act, Peoples Democratic Party Friday said that the Kashmir chaos theory of ruling Bhartiya Janta Party is not only bound to fail but it will have serious ramifications as well.
“The latest move to extend the detention of senior PDP leader and former minister Naeem Akhtar for another three months is an indication of BJP’s political vendetta against the mainstream political leadership of Kashmir”, former legislator and party spokesperson Firdous Tak said in a statement, here.
The party, he said, has time and again reminded those at the helm of affairs in New Delhi that there cannot be any alternative to political outreach and public sentiments cannot be curbed by force.
“The continued detention of senior political leaders including former Chief Minister Ms Mehbooba Mufti, Shah Faisal, Sartaj Madani, Peerzada Mansoor and house arrest of others will not help the BJP’s proxies to expand its roots in Kashmir politics”, he said.
