Don’t want to take plunge into politics: Iltija Mufti
Jammu: Asserting that she has no attraction for politics and media gaze, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Iltija Mufti on Sunday said she did not want to take a plunge into politics under the prevailing terrified atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir.
However, she did not completely rule out joining politics and said situations do come in one’s life which give direction as nobody knows the future.
“…In the current atmosphere where the politicians have become journalists and the later stenographers, I do not want to do politics in such an atmosphere. Politics is about building your relationship with the public. Certain situations come in your life (which guide you),” Iltija Mufti said at a conclave here.
She said she had seen politics from close quarters since her birth, being the granddaughter of PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. “For other people, it might be attractive…I have no attraction for it.”
