Referring to the current situation in J&K, Mir said, “people were feeling cheated and wanted change, but the BJP which has failed on all counts were busy building a fake narrative to overcome the reality in order to hide behind its failures, but the people will no longer tolerate such dirty and misleading people, which the BJP thinks it will help, the time has changed, these eight years of misrule and mismanagement of things have exposed BJP’s falsehood and deceitful politics.”
