ED Summon to Mehbooba Mufti Centre’s political vendetta: Tarigami
Srinagar: CPI (M) leader Mohammed Yousaf Tarigami has alleged Central government of carrying out ‘political vendetta’ in the backdrop of a summon issued by the Enforcement Directorate to PDP Chairperson Mehbooba Mufti.
In a statement issued here, Tarigami said, “Summoning of PDP President and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is another glaring example how the BJP government at the Centre is trying to muzzle the voices of dissent by using probe agencies against political opponents.”
“This is nothing but a political vendetta and part of vindictive politics practiced by the central government to kill dissent and disagreement and to silence the genuine demand for the reversal of unilateral and unconstitutional decisions of August 5, 2019,” he said.
“The BJP government must realise the dangers of witch-hunting and intimidation and desist from vindictive designs and instead should hold dialogue with stakeholders and restore special status which remains the only option to address the deepening uncertainty in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh”, he added.
