‘Proxy parties’ created to make decision of Aug 2019 ‘constitutional’: Mufti
Says BJP dividing regional parties in J&K to create 'proxy parties'
Bandipora: People’s Democratic Party president, Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said that the aim of “proxy parties” created by the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir is to make the “unconstitutional” decision of August 05, 2019 as “constitutional” through them in the assembly.
Talking to media on the sidelines a party convention in Bandipora, she said that the policy of BJP has been to create division among regional parties in Jammu and Kashmir.
“First they attacked PDP and created ‘proxy parties’, which everyone knows. Then they created division within NC in Jammu and made those leaders to directly join the BJP,” she said.
Mufti said that now there is a division in the Congress party as well and to her knowledge this division is not happening on its own, but is being done by the BJP.
“BJP wants to create two factions in the Congress party here as well and want to use them separately,” she said.
Replying to a question, she said that election will be held one day or the other, but she has a doubt that the way they are creating divisions among the regional parties in Jammu and Kashmir, their only aim is to use these people that in the next assembly to attest and legalise the “unconstitutional” decision of August 05, 2019.
“They will make those people, who are their proxies, to reach the assembly and through them they will make the unconstitutional decision of August 05, 2019 as constitutional and right decision. But I have full faith that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are well aware of these proxies and they understand which parties are their own parties — which parties will defend their rights and which parties will deceive them,” she said.
