Mufti demands release of Priyanka Gandhi from detention
Srinagar: India is a democracy on paper, but its grim descent into a banana republic has begun, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said on Tuesday while slamming the detention of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi in Uttar Pradesh.
She also demanded that Gandhi be released.
“GOI first gets a docile media to berate Congress & lament lack of a viable opposition but systematically ensures they don’t discharge their duties by illegal arrests. We are a democracy on paper but clearly the grim descent into a banana republic has begun. Release @priyankagandhi,” the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister said on Twitter.
