Kupwara: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday alleged that the BJP has been trying to destroy the economy of Jammu and Kashmir for the last three years while Prime Minister Narendra Modi is watching it.

According to the news agency KNO, Mufti also visited the home of the policeman who was killed in the recent militant attack at Srinagar and offered condolences to his family.

Speaking to the media, the former chief minister said that for the last three years, “the ruling BJP has created a terrible atmosphere here as employees are being fired from their jobs, while on the other hand outsiders are being re-employed

“All this shows that efforts are being made to destroy our economy while the Prime Minister is watching this spectacle,” Mehbooba Mufti alleged.

She said that those who speak the truth are being imprisoned and cited the arrest of journalists Sajjad Gul and Fahad Shah as an example. “Ordinary people can’t even talk here,” she added.

“If the situation in Kashmir is peaceful then why is the number of troops in J&K not decreasing ,” the PDP chief asked, adding that the search operations would also decrease but nothing positive is happening, which clearly suggests that the situation is not peaceful at all. (KNO)
